Hippies did the same thing in the 60'*, except they just sat in the grass and smoked grass and sang songs.

Punk kids probably don't have much of a clue about life. The real world doesn't drive the speed limit. They all seem like those young skulls fulla mush still in college, hoping to change the world once they get out of school in 7-10 years.

That is EXACTLY what they said they were showing! That the speeds limits were useless and obsolete for today.

And yes, they could probably have been pulled over for not moving over into the right lanes, which are for slower traffic.

And yes, they were a bunch of college students. It seemed to me to be a video production class project.

Hippies didn't point out that speed limits were too low, did they now?

that video was awesome. they were trying to prove a point, and that point was that in that case, obeying the law was dangerous and could result in serious injury. they did that marvelously, no matter how annoying it was for anyone else that could no longer break the law. point proven: the law should be changed in that instance. its not like itd be hard, but itd mean less revenue for the area law enforcement, so regardless of safety, the law sticks.
