Common Law is the law of the Land, fashioned over hundreds or rather thousands of years, for a fair and free(ist) system of living. These ARE the rules of Society. England is a Common law country. So what are the basics of Common law?: All people are equal. You may not harm another or cause them loss (don't injure or damage property) You may not use fraud or mischief in your contracts. (be fair and open in your dealings). Short list and easy to remember and it covers all situations. Registered vehicles don't drive under Common law, if they did you would have to have injured someone or property before there was a crime. Everyone would be responsible for their own actions. There is no such thing as a risk free world.
What we have now is registered vehicles driving under Statute law (Statutes aren't Laws, they are rules, given the force of law, by the consent of the members). You consented and joined by registering your car and getting a License. You didn't have to, if you were not on the public road to make a profit in other words in business or commerce, but you probably didn't read the law before you applied, most of us don't. (Its OK though you can still get out from under).
Statutes are rules of a Corporation or legal fiction in Commerce, now you are in Admiralty law, the law of the Sea. The law of the Sea was bought on to the land because it makes the deceivers rich, they have the courts of the land conduct both systems of law for reasons of efficiency, they said, but by mixing the 2 systems the public can be fooled. By dreaming up huge numbers of rules, basically so you can't live without breaking some of the rules, the system can fine you and get control of you and make a huge profit from you. (When I say "you" I mean the public).
Speeding Fines aren't fines, they are actually "offers to Contract", an offer for you to pay some money, I write "No contract" across them and send them back, never hear another thing. Don't ignore them as "Silence is acceptance" in law.
People who elect to travel in their cars under Common law are not avoiding responsibility, quite the opposite, they are taking responsibility for their actions, but they have to cause an injury or loss before they can be charged and or fined. Common law rights are God given and can not be denied by Government, you can chose to exercise them or not, the choice is yours and no others.
Are we children that need to be governed to what speed to travel, because we are mentally deficient and not capable of understanding road conditions? Remember there will always be human error whether a car is under Common law or statute rules, human error can not be legislated away. Speed has not been proved to be a major factor in accidents anyway. It is all about making money & power for certain class in society.
Peace and harmony to all living souls. rgds, Jim
