Literally

In a discussion on teenagers, driving, and the preferred pace on roads with lettered names, Elder happened to assert, “I don’t speed.”

“Everyone speeds,” I responded with a shrug.

“Nah,” Elder argued. “I usually stay between 55 and 60.”

“Sixty is speeding. The posted speed limit is 55. Anything over it is speeding.”

Elder rolled his eyes. “Well, sure, if you’re going to take it literally.”

Well, my mistake

The law is obviously no place for a literal translation.

Just ask a member of Congress.
