“May have been the losing side. Still not convinced it was the wrong one.”

"This report is maybe 12-years-old. Parliament buried it, and it stayed buried till River dug it up. This is what they feared she knew. And they were right to fear because there's a whole universe of folk who are gonna know it, too. They're gonna see it. Somebody has to speak for these people. You all got on this boat for different reasons, but you all come to the same place. So now I'm asking more of you than I have before. Maybe all. Sure as I know anything I know this, they will try again. Maybe on another world, maybe on this very ground swept clean. A year from now, 10, they'll swing back to the belief that they can make people . . . better. And I do not hold to that. So no more running. I aim to misbehave." ~ Captain Malcom Reynolds

Pax -
I have to go with the opinion that the man definitely was beyond the bounds of safety in his driving - he is lucky he got just a ticket, and that he got an escort as opposed to stopped right there. As many others said basically...

Quite simply, your "normal" driver is not trained or experienced in driving at those speeds, nor is their car prepared for it. Add in the stress of other traffic, plus the imminent childbirth, and this was a recipe for disaster.
