My views do not represent Safespeed but those of a driver who has driven for 39 yrs, in all conditions, at all times of the day & night on every type of road and covered well over a million miles, so knows a bit about what makes for safety on the road,what is really dangerous and needs to be observed when driving and quite frankly, the speedo is way down on my list of things to observe to negotiate Britain's roads safely, but I don't expect some fool who sits behind a desk all day to appreciate that.

Grabs- locally ,we've got the speed brigade out in force. On some roads they issued tickets. On others likewise, but ,SURPRISE /SURPRISE ,on one road where the Mothers union screamed murder , how many speeding drivers - Total =Zero /zilch . Am I surprised -NO, as in the words of one shopon this street " it's always too ful of parked cars to exceed 15mph, let alone 20,or the :30: limit" . And again, I live in and use one of the :20: zones. I agree -it's a slow zone. But try driving it at 20 - there's agressive tailgaiting to contend with . Where's plod on this occasion- oOOPS ,I forgot -no such thing as "tailgaitcam".
OH- Best joke of the day -county have started surface dressing on a 20 road . It seems no one told them of the limit as we've got "MAX SPEED =20 ,SKID LIMIT" SIGNS UP . SO was it safe before the CC moved in ,or do we really need a 20 limit .
But just to make a total mockery of the proceedings, as the temporary limit signs for the roadworks are placed on the poles for the pemranant limit.
