Inspired by a comment in another thread about how some people think the law
What will/should happen in the following situation:
The state legislature of Dopervania wants to raise the speed limits on it’s interstates from 65 to 70 miles per hour. On the last day of the session it passes a bill that states (so everyone thinks) “A driver shall not operate a motor vehicle on the interstate highways of this state in excess of 70 miles per hour. A person violating this section is guilty of a misdemeanor, and shall be fined $100 and assessed 3 points on his driver’s license.”
The governor signs the bill and all is well, but oh noes! The text of the bill left out the “not”! It’s says that a "A driver shall operate a motor vehicle on the interstate . . . "
The next morning a police officer sees me travelling on the interstate at 85 mph. He sees someone else travelling 60 mph. What should/will/would happen?
How about for other drivers travelling at 20mph, 40mph, and 190mph?
