It's simple, Ann, you just need to read a manual of 8th wonder of the world Peugeot-407. Your speedometer shows speed with which you travel, while your tachometer displays the number of engine revolutions per minite at given point of time. Beauty of this moment is that I traveled at 220 km/hour ( see needle on the left ) without risk of getting in to jail, like it would've happened elsewhere, and also managed to take the shot at that speed ! Hey, wait a minute, do you imply that you normally drive at 100 miles/hour in school zones, and have affiliations with local police which gives you chance to get away with such speed violation ?

This is beyond my comprehension, although I concede it is an artistic gem. I just know how to start, stop & steer a car, and where to put the diesel in! Vaguely understand the fuel gauge and a dial that says how many miles per hour I am travelling...what is all this meant to mean?

Cool shot.

They are truly free citizens, cross my heart :-). As for guns...Hmmm, while supporting high speeds everywhere on the globe :-), I strongly disagree with so-called "freedom" of firearms possession. Firstly, there should be legitimate reason to have them, and, secondly, they all must be registered. Otherwise society of this kind is no different from stone age tribes whereas "Wild West" mentality of gunnmen prevails :-). The most horrible & sensless crimes occur in North America and, very often, with use of fire arms... I personally know one guy in Texas who's got 6 (!) unregistered rifles, including AK-47, and, to make things worse,- his mental health is far away from being perfect ;-)

It is called "Free ride for free citizens"!

Now serious: The arguing of the car lobby in Germany is just
soooo similar to the arguments of the gun lobby in the US!
And both are dead wrong. However, it is still a pleasure to
drive over 200 sometimes! Here in CA they impound cars and
arrest people for doing so. I have to resist, and anyway,
the freeways are so bumpy here...

Your photo renders well the concept.
