That's the whole point. Speed limits are simply there for people who can't drive sensibly. Within the law doesn't mean sensibly in the same way as above the speed limit doesn't mean unsafe. In too many places limits/restrictions are blatantly put in place with no regard to safety.A lot of places have the speed limit WAY too high for anyone with half a brain and people are brainwashed into thinking that the speed limit is a safe speed by successive government anti-speeding campaigns.
Some are obviously to trap people with newly placed speed cameras-or in the case of a long straight B-road up here because the local MP's mother (who's the only one living on it within the new limits imposed) didn't like cars going past at over 30mph even though she lived 2 miles out of town...
I'm for 20mph limits near schools too.
Need spares,consoles,consumables,hire,training or even a new boat?
