Has any1 got any views on the pathetic way speed limits are set. There are some pleces which do baffle by being 30mph in an unbuilt up area on a long straight road!! Does anybody know the lunacy law about how these are set? There are ovbious ones around schools, dual carriage ways and motorways but its the odd ones im interested in.

Unfortunately for us, most speed limits were set in the 1960's. I agree there are some roads which do have stupid limits - it's possible there were hazards at some point but they have since been demolished or something.

I recon most limits should be re-assessed. Think of the progress made with cars themselves and braking distances and how much they have been reduced since the 60's.

Motorway driving especially - limit should be raised. Studies have proven that people concentrate more and accidents are reduced at higher speeds!

But hey, it's not like our government will get off their fat bums and do anything. They seem intent in trying to keep us off the roads..

Was it a blue one? He's a proper d**k. Seen him in Neston before.

And yeah, the 40 limit on the chester high road from Neston to Gayton roundabout is stupid, should be de-restricted IMO, or at least a 50/60. It's rare that i see someone keeping to the limit along there anyway! Motorway limits could be set higher too.

Anyone heard anything about this trial of taking away all road signs, markings, and speed limits? I reckon that's a great idea - Wales is full of roads with no markings and 60 limits, and it does make you loads more aware of your surroundings. This way it'd only be the dangerous drivers who get pulled too.

Of course, we'd still need markings on motorways with 3 or more lanes to keep the lane discipline, but otherwise I'm all for it.

yeh it was blue, probably was him like, it was on the chester high road!i disagree bout upping the limit. trying to pull out of lees lane on to the chester high road is such a difficulty unless somebody is going to turn down lees lane, i think they got it right there!if not turn it to 30!but obviously i would say that considerin i use it most mornins!hehe

thanx for the electrics tip btw jimbo

Jimbo4x4, see where youre coming from, but lets be honest - most drivers on our roads are fecking idiots. I HATE women drivers. I am one myself - but take pride in the knowledge I can actually drive. Imagine if the lines on the roads weren't actually there!!

Disaster i tell you..

Yeah, i notice some 30mph limits round where it ain't built up. Think some place's need to be reviewed, think some of them might be from people gettin killed.

But as you all know signs, bumps & camera's still don't stop people speeding.
