If a motorist accelerates from rest to 90mph and continues at 90mph on a 70mph dual carriageway for 50 miles then decelerates to rest, how many speeding offences did the motorist commit?
Lets say she was caught by 3 speed cameras along the route.
Did she commit 3 offences or only one, the one where she went from below to above the speed limit?

She committed an infinite number of speeding offences?

According to Heisenberg and Schrodinger a motorist is both speeding and not speeding. Only when a motorist passes a speed camera can it be forced into one of the states. Therefore every time a motorist trips a speed camera counts as a separate offence.
