I wish that laws were based on normal responsible people and not on the lowest common denominator of intelligence.
Speed limits should rise to 100 MPH on the motorway as contemporary vehicles are considerably better equipped to deal with breaking and avoidance of collision. Are we all really so inept and thoughtless that we cannot handle 100MPH? Of course not, it would mean that instead of ignoring the law, drivers would finally respect it.
Remove ALL 20MPH zones other than outside schools. Again, the inclusion of 20MPH zones is based solely on the lowest common denominator of driver. Everybody I know can stop just as easily at 30MPH because, wait for it, they use their heads while driving and keep an eye on the road ahead, like most people.
Why does this idea matter?
Why should we all suffer for the lazy inconsiderate road menaces out there who can’t even be bothered to do something as simple as indicate while over taking or at a junction? Just because they cannot be trusted to realise that the vehicle they are driving is a killer in the wrong hands and to only drive as appropriate, why do all of us good drivers have to be treated similarly? I say that a driving licence should be among the hardest things to get and only the best drivers should be given them. Then sort the road laws out so that we responsible drivers can use the roads safely and quickly, without hindrance. No cameras and higher speed limits, coppers out on the road doing their job for a change instead of relying on CCTV or speed cameras.
