Excerpted From Issue the Sixty-second of Matters concerning His Lawful assembly
“Exercising Your Duty of Movement on the Common Ways”

The first thing to understand is that all codes, rules, and regulations that 'govern' the areas of transportation apply only to natural persons, residents, corporations, and other fictitious entities. They do not apply to the servants of Christ. Notice that the traffic laws of a State only apply to those who are residents or travelers within that State, and not to foreigners, transients, or sojourners:

"The sovereign authority can extend only over those who are subject to it; it cannot, therefore, regulate the rights of foreigners. But if they come within its territory, either to reside or travel, they are considered as submitting themselves to the authority of the laws of the country, and they are bound by them. This is perfectly reasonable, for during their stay in the country they are protected by its laws." 1 Bouvier's Inst. of law (1851), page 38.

Notice that to 'travel' is synonymous with being a 'resident.'

"Within the meaning of 'a right to travel', means migration with intent to settle and abide." Strong v. Collatos, D.C. Mass., 450 F. Supp. 1356, 1360.

"Nom de guerre - a war name; an assumed traveling name; a pseudonym." Webster's New Twentieth Century Dictionary, Unabridged (World Publishing Company, 1969); Dictionary of Foreign Words and Phrases, page 1202.

'Traveling' and 'driving' are purely commercial terms. Therefore, you should use the term "exercising my duty of movement on the Common Ways". Only in this way can you bring God's Law and your ambassadorship into a potential situation with the military police. Also notice that a Nom de guerre, a fictitious name, is a 'traveling name', meaning you are a 'resident,' and under the jurisdiction of the State.

Saepe viatorim nova non vetus orbita fallit.
Often it is the new road, not the old one, which deceives the traveller.
