On a motorway you don't have pedestrians, oncoming traffic, people turning right, etc. yet speed limits are fairly rigorously enforced.
Motorways are (by the Govt.'s own statistics) Britains safest roads.
45mph on a city street is potentially more 'dangerous' than 120mph on a motorway. But guess which one will get you a two year ban and a hefty fine and which one will get you a three point fixed penalty...
Really is time that someone who has a driving license (and isn't in the pocket of the Rail Unions) was put in charge of transport.
Yes, I have a licence filled with endorsements.
Yes, I have been banned for speeding.
Yes, I do stick to speed limits where they have been properly applied and
no, I'm not making a judgement on people who speed/don't speed.
