A truck tire with a diameter of 36 in is rolling over level ground spinning at 11 rotations/second. If the speed limit is 55 miles per hour and the penalty is \$20 per hour over the speed limit, should the driver be fined and if so, how much?

1. 36 * pi in/rev * 11 rev/sec * 1mi/(5280*12)in * 3600s/hr = 71mph

so, the fine is \$20*16 = \$320
