    Does the posted speed go into effect when you can read the sign or not until your car reaches the sign?

    "It’s the imaginary line when you cross as you pass the sign, according to State Patrol troopers.
    Trooper Dan McDonald mentioned signs that changed the speed limit – 25 mph to 35 mph, or 60 mph to 70 mph on the freeway, for example. You should stay at the initial speed until you hit the sign with the new speed, he said."

    At that point it's pretty much a blood clot.

    Officer: I saw you wearing binoculars so you saw that speed limit sign from 200 yards away. I'm ticketing you for going too fast.

    It's a miracle I don't get pulled over more often. I pay zero attention to that shit.
