'40mph in a 60' numpties.

When is someone going to crack down on the '40mph in a 60' numpties? I think they've been persuaded that they're the safest drivers by the "Speed Kills" lobby but that's nonsense. Their incompetence causes congestion, it frustrates other drivers and encourages desperate overtakes. Of those I've seen lately most still couldn't turn the wheel fast enough to avoid dangerously straddling the centre line, many dab the brakes every time they see an oncoming car, one had no reaction at all when I could see the pheasant a mile off, poor thing, and hills didn't elicit a response so the chain of 30-odd cars behind bunched up even more as the speed reduced further. Then when we drive through built-up areas the familiarity of pavements, schools and driveways seems to reassure them and they keep going when you'd expect them to slow.

I'm all for obeying 30mph limits and I see nothing wrong with 100mph plus on a quiet dual carriageway but something should be done about these dozy drivers. Deputise riders to administer justice, perhaps! What do you think? Any more examples?

Try 30 in a 60, then when he got onto the 30 road like your mate must have been encouraged by the sight of paths and people, he sped up to 40 just in time for the speed camera, quality.

just stay cool

the worst think that can happen is if your driving style gets affected by other drivers, as they say do not do emotional driving or riding.

On the 40 in 60 zones - it can be annoying and also its free country, as soon they drive in the proper lane try to stay away from Volvos and such :lol:
