Can the speed of light be legislated? Explain your reasoning.

As best as we know, the speed of light is a fundamental constant of the universe. I have no idea of the meaning "legislated".

Someday they may pass laws and light will have to slow down. After the laws are passed light could get a speeding ticket. Punishable by up to a year in a dark cell in solitary confinement. Or face the prism at point blank range (for second offenders)Perhaps more legislation will be needed to rehabilitate light. Maybe a lighter sentence...Or to get off light... I'm lighting outta here...

Good work.

Nise site!

    The meter is defined as the distance light travels in 1/2.99792458×108 seconds. This definition requires that the speed of light be accurately known. This speed can be measured with high precision and is defined to be exactly 2.99792458×108 meters/second. Thus the speed of light is a legislated quantity.

    The speed if light cannot be legislated/measured period. No matter what google might say.
