Hey Isaac,

You need to return "safe" after you check the speed.

def check_speed(car_speed)
  if car_speed >= 40 && car_speed <= 50
    return "safe"
  end
end

Caleb Kleveter are you asking about parenthesis around the if statement's condition? If so those are not required in ruby except in cases where you need to make the order explicit.
