'Relative' is the key. There is no fixed background to say 'This is going absolutely this fast', any observation point in any kind of motion is as viable as any other. It just falls out of a little bit of simple vector maths - so no, your question is not answerable, as it's malformed.

I hope you're ready to get the shit kicked out of you, because that's inevitably what's going to happen. I can't really see how it isn't going to happen.

I suspect it'll happen so frequently, that the police in any state won't even bother to charge anyone doing so with a crime after a short while.

Good luck!
