Imagine if the police had the power to pull you over because you are driving a fast looking car. They then issue you a ticket for speeding, however there is no posted speed limit. The police officer has not been issued a radar gun or laser and so doesn’t know how fast you were actually traveling, they judge your offense based on what they think is ‘reasonable’ at that moment in time. A ticket is, similarly, issued for any amount the police officer deems ‘reasonable’ in the circumstances.
