Variable limits work when there is an actual problem, not when they say "40mph" for no reason like they do every time I go on the M25.

The time-trial WOULD work as it would result in less congestion with no perceptible delays for lorryists and yet plenty of benefits for everyone else. Yet it seems its' not being enforced, well what is required is policing or perhaps using the cameras to start fining lorryists who disobey....

IF we are talking vehicles, I have a 7 year old diesel (50mpg) a 12 Year old motorcycle and another car registered in 1965 ! A Grand slam I think ? I cause more pollution with my chainsaw I think, LOL, ROFLMAO.

I see this stretch of road is now branded as "UK's worst" and that accidents happen "almost daily".
I don't think so!! dry.gif

Via Wantage is not a dual carridgeway though is it? (I think not anyway, I used to blat around those areas on my bike at quite some speed, good times laugh.gif)
These people unfortunately live under the illusion that speed is directly related to accidents, or that if there was a speed limit their problems would go away.
Well they won't. But I think it's just a phase right now, yes no-one is denying there are problems there lately (relatively speaking) but it's been fine up until then and I think in a few months the accident rate will settle down!

What are the causations of all the crashes referred to? In some cases it may be driving into the rear of slower traffic. Creating slower traffic may increase that type of crash......

If people don't know the causes, how can they know the solution?

Yes, I'd like to know what percentage of accidents were brought about with people driving between 50 and the speed limit.

Or even below 50mph.... Or only involving LGVs (whose rate of progress will not be reduced by a 50 limit).....

Well I picked 50 or more because that is the proposed limit.

I shan't be the one to report it myself, but my guess is that you are likely to have your offensive post pulled.

Yeah, but we obviously have different points of view (DEAR POINTS OF VIEW...) when it comes to matters on speed being speed-freaks than Adrian so....we're all very unlikely to ever agree on a solution.

Shame really as it was a long post. As I said, it wasn't me that reported it, but the mods are on their toes. You only had to edit that first sentence. It's a fine line between light banter and something being viewed as offensive.
