: i've thought about "it lets daddy know if he's going too fast", but she knows what the speedometer is for, plus, she'll know the truth soon enough and i don't want her to look back and remember me bending the truth with her; at the same time i can't possibly be up front about it. does this mean i have to trade in the ///M for a nice minivan?

I would tell them the truth: you intend to drive the speeds the roads were designed for, but local (and federal) governments have lowered official speed limits in order to get money from people (i.e., a Tax) without having to have a vote on it. Thus, I am avoiding an illegal tax (imho). Civil disobedience has a long and fine history in the US....
