Re: Speedy Gonzales..... not in Manchester !

The reliance on the cameras and lack of police presence has lead to a pretty much free for all on the roads around here.

I'd hardly say that it has been any contribution to road safety.

In an effort to make the roads "safer" a major duel carriageway on the city's edge is having its speed limit reduced to 40mph. It's been 50mph for decades with rarely any accidents.

It will be a nice boost for our cash strapped council and will probably end up causing more accidents not less.

All the roads on our estate have had the 30mph speed limit reduced to 20mph.

The problem is they also resurfaced every road making ours, for example, into a near perfect drag strip.

I'm sure the long term plan with all these continuing speed reductions is that we will all end up being passed by a man with a flag.

Re: Speedy Gonzales..... not in Manchester !

I remember a few years ago, I counted the number of cameras I passed as I travelled from Edinburgh to Thirsk on my bike. (Down the A68 most of the way)

I got to 80 between Edinburgh and the border Crazy3Crazy3 then about 6 from there to Thirsk! Grin
