The state speed limit debate picks up...
Jury Nullification

Ankeny, IA

#23 Mar 16, 2013
What most people do not know is that a juror has the right to nullify any law that they deem wrong or unconstitutional on any particular case on which they sit. And, further more, very few judges do not or will not inform the jury that they have a right to challenge any law by a “not guilty” verdict.

juries should always be told the that the jury is the defendant’s last hope in fighting injustice.

Not A juror, a jury. Not nullify a law, but rule against it. Of course, the judge typically sets aside that decision and the prosecutor retries. How goofy are you ?? DRUGS, huh ?

You are full of sheet or just plain stupid.

Catalytic converters do NOT function until a vehicles speed is over 40 MPH.

You see they need a flow of hot exhaust gas from the ICE in order to heat up and burn pollutants.

Slower IS NOT BETTER!!!

So what you're saying is you prefer a justice system where every innocent or not guilty ruling is re-tried until a guilty ruling is found..... yeah okay Bolo

I'm capable of defending speed limits, while you're incapable of determining reality.

One of Americans' basic “Bill of Rights” rights is “the basic constitutional right to travel,” upheld as long ago as in cases such as Crandall v Nevada, 73 US 35; 18 L Ed 745 (1868), Pinkerton v Verberg, 78 Mich 573; 44 NW 579 (1889), and once again reaffirmed by the U.S. Supreme Court in so many words, "right to travel," in Dunn v Blumstein, 405 US 330; 92 S Ct 995; 31 L Ed 2d 274 (1974). This Constitutional "right to travel" has been used to strike down a number of politician-invented laws, devised on various fraudulent pretexts. Except for Speeding Laws WHY?

Back to the topic of speed limits on rural Minnesota state highways...

It is mildly interesting that Senator Westrom introduced this bill to raise the speed limits and he does not drive.

He does not DRIVE? Really, any link or anything? That is amusing. With that said I believe traffic is sparse and the road straight with nothing but grass on either side..... The only hazard the police on I-90. I'll post a review on I-90 soon as I find one.

-----I-90 in Minnesota

--Interstate 90 enters the state from South Dakota near Beaver Creek. This part of Minnesota has flat to gently rolling terrain and is the beginnings of corn belt farmland. The flat terrain is often subject to blowing and drifting snow in colder months, and the western portions of the highway are closed multiple times each winter.

--Rock County, where I-90 enters Minnesota, is one of the only counties in the state lacking a natural lake. The change from semi-arid to a wetter climate happens slowly moving eastbound on I-90 through southern Minnesota. The route passes through the cities of Luverne, Adrian, Worthington, Jackson, Fairmont, and Blue Earth. I-90 has a junction with I-35 at Albert Lea.

--East of the city of Austin, I-90 changes direction slightly and heads towards Rochester, and the route enters a much more hilly landscape. This is the driftless area of southeast Minnesota. Unlike the rest of the state, where the most recent glaciations left terrain that is either flat or rolling under a deposit of glacial till, this area escaped the most recent glaciation. The bedrock to the top of the I-90 road cuts is noticeable at this point. The other notable feature of this area are deep, steep valleys cut by water that poured through this area as the ice cap melted.

--I-90 drops into the scenic Mississippi River valley just west of Dresbach. The I-90 freeway lanes split apart as you drop down, then rejoin west of the junction with U.S. Highway 61. I-90 then parallels the Mississippi River before turning east and crossing into Wisconsin.

--I-90 is atypical in that just across the Minnesota / Wisconsin state line,(immediately west of the community of Dakota) the median is wide enough that farms exist between the road beds.[2]

--Legally, the Minnesota section of Interstate 90 is defined as unmarked Legislative Route 391 in the Minnesota Statutes. Interstate 90 is not marked with this legislative number along the actual highway

Kassel v Consolidated Freightways, 450 US 662; 101 S Ct 1309; 67 L Ed 2d 580 (1981)

The Iowa Godless Swine Government said that 55 feet double-trailer trucks are safer than 65 foot double-trailer trucks, the supreme court called their farce and struck it down, "As an unconstitutional burden on interstate commerce."

--So isn't forcing drivers to slow down an unconstitution burden on interstate commerce?
-I can go up to 720miles away at 120mph and get there and back within the same day... saving on hotel and food expenses, cutting down on delays and other expenses as well.

-This puts the USA at a disadvantage to other major economies like Germany.
