Re: New speed limits

That's good, as all we ask is that rules are clear to all.

Re: New speed limits

Just read that road fatalities down here in the Gard increased by 69% since 1st July.

It would appear that here at least, the speed limit reduction has had no beneficial effect whatsoever.

Paint sales are also signicantly up - most of the radar boxes are regularly vandalised, red paint being the weapon of choice !!

Re: New speed limits

Love it, and why is that not a surprise, too much watching the speedo and not the car in front ... and frustration when in a longer than ever queue due to the nouveau speed limit.  Round here there are roads which are either perfectly safe at 90, straight, long, no trees, or so narrow and bendy that you could not do 80 on them if you tried ... even if allowed.  Daft IMHO.
