That is all it took for me to get a speeding fine on four wheels. I have not driven a car in over 3 1/2 years, before that was my parents car. My sole mode of transport for the past 2 1/2 years has been a bike. Recently I took a well deserved holiday, being the only one with a license out of my useless ~28 year old friends, I rented a car to get us to our destination. Just got a letter from Thriffty with a $50 charge for administration fees of them having to process a speeding fine. I am yet to recieve the actual speeding fine letter. Over 10 years of having my license and no infringements, runied. I feel a little jibbed. Awareness of what is around us is what keeps us safe, not an x km/h number. Steping into a car with the lessons you learn as a rider; does a number make you safe or the buffer zones you place around yourself? By the time of the speeding fine listed on the Thriffty letter I am guessing it would have happened on the Pacific Highway (Syd, Chatswood - Hornsby stretch) on a saturday. Would not have been by much. Under 10km/h over. For a saturday there was a fair bit of traffic, and having been away form a car for a while I was not one for changing lanes and rushing. Was kind of slightly weird driving a car. It was like riding a bike as a little kid and then going back to it as an adult after a long hitatus. The ingrained knowledge was there, but it just felt strange. The mind telling you one thing the body wanting to do another. Your foot wondering why the hand is not doing the accelerating. The hand wondering why the foot has taken over the braking.
