You are speeding on the freeway going miles per hour. You see a police car with its radar gun pointed right at you, and you try to slow down quickly. Your car's brakes give you an deceleration of 17 ft/s2 (a realistic number). How long will it take you to slow down to 55 miles per hour? Is it worth even trying to slow down?
