Slow Down

The Government will order local authorities to reconsider the limits on all roads this month, particularly rural ones, where 63 per cent of road deaths happen”, reports Times Online.

Good, I’ve long thought that 60 mph is way too fast for many of our local roads. I expect the neanderthals in associations for drivers or motorists will scream that their human rights are in jeopardy. They seem to believe that the right to speed is enshrined in Magna Carta or some such.

It’s odd that speeding and tax evasion seem to be respectable crimes; normally law abiding people seem happy to boast about committing them. Curious that putting lives at risk or stealing money from the rest of us should be thought to be fine, upstanding behaviour.......
