Hi Lenka,

First of all, we want to make an if statement that will set too_fast equal to true if the car speed is faster than the speed limit:

if car_speed > speed_limit
  too_fast = true

But if the car_speed is less than the speed limit we set too_fast equal to false:

else
  too_fast = false
end

I hope those hints help! Happy Coding!
