    a whole industry producing radar detectors and the ubiquitous CB radio "Smoky" warnings . . . it was the highway equivalent of Prohibition (and the widespread resistance to it).  "55" was almost universally hated, but I don't recall anyone making a (presidential) campaign issue of it . . .

    I'm sure it played a part in the increasing disdain for "big government", though, and it certainly turned deliberate lawbreaking into a national sport . . .

    Fake Left, Drive Right . . . not my idea of a Democrat . . .
