I can't identify a specific road rule from OS David but I must say State Troopers in the US have a much smarter and fairer approach to highway policing than Australia does. On numerous US interstates I've driven on, HP cars are a common sight but if the posted speed limit is say 60mph and the traffic is flowing along steadily at 70mph they won't blink an eyelid. They work on the theory that traffic finds its own comfortable rate of travel and they'll only pounce if someone is driving well above what the majority is travelling at. That's smart policing as far as I'm concerned, rather than Australia's preference for nailing anyone straying 2-3km/h over the posted limit. Real nanny state stuff.
