<strong>Motorway Speed Limits !
M-way limits have always been a total nonsense - to permit a 1960's Fiat 500 to share the same speed limit as a '2002' Aston Martin is unbelievable folly.
We now have classifications for environmental controls - why not have a build classification ?
Say 5 groups - 50,60,70,80,90mph - over 12 yrs old is in the 50mph zone whereas your Class 1 rating is in the 90mph until year 3 when it drops to 80 and 70 following year 6 and so on.
A plate on the rear will denote which speed class the car belongs.
More complicated, of course, but a damn sight fairer than the current ridiculous situation.
