Speed limits are limiting my freedom!

September 3rd, 2015 Posted by Ask the Rabbi No Comment yet

Question:

OK, I admit it–I love to go fast. So when the local city council keeps lowering the speed limits, I get frustrated. The argument is always “safety,” so it’s hard to find fault, and I know I need to drive safely, yet I sense my rights are being taken away under false pretenses. What should be my Godly response?
Thanks.

Answer:

Dear Chris,

OK, we admit it. One of us does like to drive faster than the other.  Much faster.  Wild horses couldn’t force us to disclose whether it is Rabbi Daniel or Mrs. Susan.   That said, one of us can relate better to your question, and again we’re not saying which one.  Though it might seem trivial, you are actually asking quite a serious question.
