Yeah, maybe one limit for cars above 2 litres and one for those 2 litres and below
Nope BB - I voted that you are just craaaazy booy !
Personally I would pefer
a) much more realistic driver education and training including some skidpan training, overtaking etc. Proper positioning on windy roads etc etc.
b) Speed cameras only on known black spots
c) A lot more human traffic police corps monitering of actual dangerous driving, but being able to use their judgement as to whether fractional deviations form the strict limit were actually in any way dangerous for the conditions.
Unfortunately I got a speeding fine once (my only points to date) for a the most innocent misdemeanour, on a very very wide long road with excellent visability of the empty other side of the road for 1 KM ahead I over took 2 or three cars in convoy that were doing 5mph below the limit.
During this manouvere I exceeded the speed lmit by 15 mph for a few seconds before allowing the speed to bleed back to the limit.
The polite Garda (Irish police officer) confirmed that the speed reading was for when I had overtaken and yes that he noticed I hasd resumed the limit afterwards. I took my punishment with good humour but internally I was slightly incredulous though . Is overtaking slowly actually safer - I don't think so !
AlfaGuy would you have "shopped" me ?
Hmm I suppose you have liability here, let me rephrase - would you think I was unlucky?
