The Spirit of the Law?

Ok, where did this come from? What is it? Is it ever used? When and where?
I hear this now and then with people in their conversations and I wonder if they really know what it means?
I know that when I am driving down the road and I see a speed limit sign that says 55mph, I wonder what that sign is reallly telling me? Is it saying really that If I go 56mph that I am breaking a law based actual tests or is it that the spirit of the law, is to be safe at the speed of my car is going on the road?
Is the intention of the law telling me that going super fast is not in my best interest? Why are we hung up on the Law? 55 Or else?

I say all that to say “what if we lived by the Spirit of the Law, as opposed by the Law.?”
Now you can go two different ways with this at least. I am going to go with my direction first.
If Christ has come and died on the Cross and has died to the law. Why are we still living by the law? Let’s get over it! and Live by the Spirit of the Law!!!!
