Proposals are announced to introduce lower speed limits of 50 and even 40mph on all country roads - what are your views? e-mail the webmaster and your views may appear here........
and now more residential areas are being restricted to 20mph and the Police have stated they will only enforce if a local problem is highlighted! So do they mean 20mph or not? - Apparently they
are now under review.
"Over reliance on blanket low speed limits is counter productive. Drivers then lose respect for other speed limits which I think is already happening!"
"why are speed limits placed so far ahead of obstacles such as roundabouts - they clearly don't really mean motorists to slow to that speed at the speed limit sign?!"
"Maybe there should be a 'country road/lanes driving course offered by the IAM?"
"Proposals to reduce speed limits on certain motorways because of poor air quality?"
"Lower speed limits appear to be imposed on more & more roads - are they counter productive?"
An expert once said that if someone says that on a particular stretch of road over 70% of drivers are found to be speeding, the reaction should not be, "that's terrible, let's put up a camera" (or reduce the limit further!). It should be "what's wrong with the speed limit?"
