If that's not oppressive, I don't know what is.
Reminds me of the old joke.
A cop stops someone for running a red light. The driver keeps insisting that he should be let go because he "slowed down" rather than stopping as required. The officer tried to explain the difference and the dangers of not stopping, but the driver kept saying that he "slowed down" so everything was ok. Eventually, the officer pulls out his baton and starts hitting the driver with it. He then asks, "OK, do you want me to slow down or stop?"
5 mph is not stopping.
