Thou shalt not speed

Britton Road through the Village is posted 35 mph, and there's a sign below it: RADAR CONTROLLED.

I saw that this weekend, and I remembered a time from my younger, dumber days, when I actually believed that somewhere along the road was a guy with a big control panel, and if you were going too fast he'd pull back on a slider and suddenly you weren't going too fast anymore.

For some reason, there are Brits who think this is a great idea.
