Uncivil Obedience with David Pozen and Jessica Bulman-Pozen
In April 1993, a group of California motorists hit the road to protest the fifty-five-miles-per-hour freeway speed limit. They did not break any laws, or even test any legal bounds. But their actions caused significant disruption and enraged people around them. What did they do? “[J]ust about the worst thing you can do to your fellow freeway drivers: They stayed within the speed limit.” To challenge the fifty-five-miles-per-hour rule and encourage its repeal, the National Motorists Association devised a peculiar form of protest: meticulous adherence to the very law it opposed.
