gathering of about 50 people, many of whom were children, State Senator Jack ASS...err, Hatch proudly admitted his driver was speeding and that he was fully aware of it.
"The max was 72. I was watching, too. I knew exactly what Matt (a campaign staffer) was doing."
According to the Iowa Department of Transportation the most common statutory speeds are:
20 mph in business districts
25 mph in residential and school districts
45 mph in suburban districts
55 mph on rural highways
65 mph on selected multilane highways
70 mph on rural interstate highways
Speeding is speeding.
I guess "nobody's above the law" doesn't apply to Jack Hatch, or his driver, and the scientific community is united in that fact.
Jack Hatch will be speeding to a town near you as he so far has visited 35 of Iowa's 99 counties and must not miss a small crowd.
