Does anyone think speeding is actually good?
There's an A road near me that goes through a small hamlet and the speed drops to 40mph. I can't see any sensible reason why anyone would think that's not sensible with there being a couple of side roads, house driveways, etc. Yet cars continually speed down there, I've been overtaken several times when I'm sticking to the limit.
I came through today and there is a police speed trap pulling cars in and presumably bollocking them and/or giving tickets out. Why are cars coming past and warning other drivers to slow down? That won't amend their driving in future, they'll carry on speeding and so it continues. Or are the police really universally loathed?
I hope they catch dozens and fine and point them all.
And while at it - why not have a few 'plain clothes' coppers in town at traffic lights and catch a few on their mobiles. Anyone seeing a policeman / car has plenty of time to drop the phone usually, start a crackdown on that too.
