Word of the Day:

  •  Knead – verb [need]

This Day in History: 1901 – Connecticut becomes the first state to pass a law regulating motor vehicles, limiting their speed to 12 mph in cities, and 15 mph on country roads.

Fact of the Day:  Adoption of speed regulations and other traffic codes was a slow and uneven process across the nation.  As late as 1930, 12 states still had no speed limit, and 28 states still didn’t require a driver’s license to operate a motor vehicle.

#StrangeButTrue: As of 2018, The Fast and the Furious franchise is 17 years old, meaning, if it were a person, it would now be old enough to drive.
