I'm all for it. I'm fed up with obeyeing the law and knowing that lots of people don't have a MOT or Tax, and paying for it.
I'm sorry for all those people that get caught speeding, because I know lots of illegals get away with it, but speed limits are there for a reason. To save life primarily.
Its unfortunate if you have a chav BMW supercar but really theres no room for those cars on Britains roads. Why not try a race track !
Alternatively obey the speed limits.
It'd help if the database wasn't flawed. police_crushed_my_car_even_though_it_was_insured
Speed cameras are innacurate, badly sited and in general a menace that distracts drivers from looking at the road. I've been flashed before at under 40mph in a 50 limit on the M42. I've also had one go off as I approached the front of it (this is illegal unless it's a Truvelo type) while doing under 30 in an unlit 30 limit at night on a sharp bend. I nearly ended up in a wall-I couldn't see anything but a white glare for 2 or 3 seconds.
Breaking the speed limit doesn't kill. Inappropriate speed for the conditions kills-and that could be well under the posted limit.
People unfortunately are mostly sheep who will believe any old crap fed to them and the constant harping on about not breaking speed limits by this government is ridiculous. We now have drivers on the road that think as long as they aren't breaking the limits they can't be doing anything wrong. The limit says 30 round the blind bend nevermind that they can't stop in time to avoid the pedestrian walking round it.
The same goes for outside schools. 30mph past a school is asking for trouble at chucking out time-but it's legal....
