Have to - example

A man finished work. He had been working very hard and was looking forward to getting home. He got into his car, loosened his tie to feel more comfortable and started to drive. In the rear view mirror he could see a police car flashing at him to pull over. He did and the police pulled in front of him then got out of their car. The man wound down his window and asked what the problem was. "You have been travelling at 80mph in a 60 mph stretch you are over the speed limit so you will have to pay a fine." He was embarrassed but there was nothing he could do about it.
