I heard that an' all. Twats.
what a complete load
of rubbish when will the health and safety brigade stop
it's for your own good....
they don't want you to have a mullock with a tractor and s*** spreader or an herd of cows/flock of sheep etc....So it's easier to make millions of motorists go slow,than tell mr and mrs potato head to look after their f****ing animals and put lights on their shit spreaders/trailers.
Kindle not a fire that you cannot extinguish.
put the speed limit to what ever they want,the chances of me taking any notice of them are slim." />" />" />
"If i need the Moon, ill bring it down myself"...
these clueless pillocks weren't so vocal about sorting out the bloody potholes etc.
Dropping the limit means that the little money that does get spent will be reduced even more.
Have to stick to 40 tho the fekkin roads are fekked at the minute flooding here has ruined the roads even further
Jeremy Clarkson is a Twat..plus he hates motorcyclists and everything else on the planet that isn't jeremy clarkson.. lanky streak of horseheaded shittiness that he is
Obliging stoaty his down votes so his life seems worthwhile. I'm a philanthropist.
the problem is not the limit
but the fact that some clueless council bureaucrat will decide where it should be, the fact is national speed limit is kind of optimistic for some country lanes. Some of the country roads are definitely not safe, no hard shoulders, no guard rails at all and the lane width is well below 3.25m safe width. Actually some contry roads are so narrow that a truck cannot fit in lane. I wonder where my road tax money are going?
And 20mph for town main road means that if there is a need for it the road should not be there, main roads should be designed for traffic that moves, not to mention the modern car and bike gears are NOT designed for such crawling speeds I mean the pollution will be enourmous
Unless I'm wrong, which, you know, I'm not...
stop bleating and think for a moment
OK so they put a 40mph limit on every bit of country road in the country. So what? Unless they are going to spend £millions on speed cameras or employ thousands more plod how in hell are they going to enforce it? Not a chance in hell. Where I live we have a website that posts where the idiots are going to be with their camera vans, they even post where the civilian numpties will be with THEIR cameras too so we know in advance where they will be so we just either slow down at those points or just avoid em, easy. The chances of getting busted for speeding on a country road is about 1% of the chances of hitting a tractor. Chill out. " />
of the roads within 2 miles of every village have a 30 on em' now (round Lancs and Yorks dales)
If its safe to go quick, (in the new 40 limits) I will, if its not I won't, just as I do now.
BTW - was warned about a speed gun the other day by a pedestrian - big fook off dual carrigeway - 30 limit ffs I was doing 40 ish then rather quickly 20 ish
i agree with sprag
no need to worry there arnt enough plod to enforce it and there arnt enough cameras either and with the cuts and then more cuts and no dout a few more cuts that the goverment plan chances are soon enough we will have to arest ourselves and lock ourselves up for the weekend
**Most of the A roads in Oxfordshire **
are already 50mph limits. I really don't understand the hype about reducing deaths on the road, if they really want to reduce premature deaths they should limit the number of pies you can eat, not the speed you can travel.
Far more people die from heart disease than die on the roads.
horses are thye answer.
the way these health & safety numpties & friends of the earth are going on we will all be riding around on horse back and living in mud huts before long,,,mind you horses can gallop,better stick with donkeys much slower,umm they still move though, oh eff it just stay in doors lol
....I agree with a few on here, make the limit what the fuck you like, i will judge how fast or slow to go not some prick in an office who knows fuck all about bikes or cars and probably does not own either if living in London, tell you what make the speed limit 5mph through out the Country, then we will see what happens........fucking gridlock.
bikes are far safer
too right they are & bikes dont shit in middle of road,and when did u last see an horse on its side powering thru a set of twistys lol,and as others have said who the f**k is gong to enforce these limits now plod is being cut??
think of the cost of putting 40mph signs up on every b road in the uk. as if they dont put a speed sign then you can still hit 60mph. plus if they make sure the horse are off the road and only on dirt tracks the road be a lot saver
The fella from the RAC was on telly saying that lowering the speed limits was OK, but wasn`t any good unless we have greater enforcement. !!!
If I was a member I`d cancel my membership. Bloody idiots. Whose side they on anyway?
Valid, Logical, Evidence Based, Proven statistics
Yet again a gov't ignores them totally in favour of their own doctrine & the F*>#wits that whisper in their ears!
Quick search brings up the kind of stuff I've used in my arguements for YEARS...
Granted this first is a U.S. study but we're all human (well mostly!) so subject to the same foibles
Obviously there's an equally strong argument Against the raising of the limit, but where's the Evidence to support this argument? Most of the ones I've read have been Speculative rather than based on Evidence
If History has taught us One thing....
It's We've learnt None of Histories Lessons!
