Right place ?
Not really hit /miss /dent, but today I've seen a lot more near misses, with one car with smoking tyres on braking. Daughter tells me she's nearly been taken out at junctions on several occasions today . I had to go into our pedestrian area today to access shops (before I get flamed, sign says, for loading/ cycles/taxis & Blue badge holders =- me), and the number of near misses I saw was horrific between yoofs in cars with noise driving the wrong way and pedestrians.

lets bring sanity back to speed limits.
Drivers are like donkeys -they respond best to a carrot, not a stick .Road safety experts are like Asses - best kept covered up ,or sat on

Although one might think nice hot weather would make people happier, I think when it becomes repressive drivers get more cranky which in turn is reflected in their driving. I wonder if drivers in cars with A/C are less likely to be cranky or accident prone when it’s very hot. Just a thought... :)

The views expressed in this post are personal opinions and do not necessarily represent the views of Safe Speed.
You will be branded a threat to society by going over a speed limit where it is safe to do so, and suffer the consequences of your actions in a way criminals do not, more so than someone who is a real threat to our society.
