Agree, and IMO that is what sets the Mazda 2 apart from all the other minis, it's retro looking dashboard with a simple speedo cluster, shifter as part of console and dash which gives a spacious interior front...it is simple, but has almost everything other 'top' brands have.
Enlightenment is man’s leaving his self-caused immaturity. Immaturity is the incapacity to use one's intelligence without the guidance of another. Such immaturity is self-caused if it is not caused by lack of intelligence, but by lack of determination and courage to use one's intelligence without being guided by another. Sapere Aude! - Immanuel Kant
Some highway toll systems in the US do that.
When you get to your final destination, and either use your EZ-Pass to pay the toll, or you hand over your toll ticket, if they calculate that you did the highway span in less than a certain amount of time, you earn a nice additional fee for speeding.
