I'm looking to identify a science fiction short story. I originally read it in highschool during the 1990s, but it was likely published much earlier, possibly in the 70s.
A young man is taking his date on a car ride under manual controls on the roads, instead of automatic computer controls, possibly in the sky? They're pulled over by the police for a minor infraction, and because they're under manual control, the punishment was death to both occupants of the car.
It has the same kind of feel as the Cold Equations, where the punishment doesn't seem to fit the crime, except that they are explicitly "breaking" the normal rules of conduct.
