>I'm generally in favor of following the law.

IMO it is the responsibility of every citizen to ignore laws that are stupid. Civil disobedience.

I realize this would mean some people might say "going 30 by a school zone is stupid!". So be it. If you disobey laws that most people believe are right, then you lose and face the consequences. If you disobey laws that most people will realize are stupid nothing is likely to happen to you.
