Since there hasnt been a thread specific to this subject for a few yrs, im going to attempt start the ball rolling again... It has been proven over the years, in many european countries, that what they promote here, to ensure 'road safety', by the continued lowering of speed limits, is a total crock of bs.. its evidential, by those european countries, that driver/rider awareness & skill is much more effective in lowering crash &kill ratio.. But our illustrious government &plodforce, wouldnt be gathering the high levels of revenue raised, by us being more skilled road users.. Instead they continue to lower the levels of skill/aptitude for licences to be aquired. They continue lowering average speed allowances, & percentages of acceptable excess, whilst raising enforcement fee schedules, otherwise called fines. They continue to cause distractions by such solid policy enforcement, that everybody, even those with a good degree of spacial awareness, are more likey to be involved in a crash, due to having to continually take their eyes off the road, to check that their speed isnt creeping into the now minimalized allowable amount over the prescribed limit... & then promote to everybody that speed kills, & those that do are treated like life threatening killers. The whole system is a hoax and farce, not unlike the policy makers and enforcers... Thats my understanding.. What do all the other license holders/sheep/slaves/citizens understand on the subject matter.. & more, can anything be done about it, without finding yourself in the lockup, as a governmental antagonist?
