70mph.

Being honest, the new speed limit doesn't bother me that much, you can still break it like you do today. But the way they want to enforce with those fucking average speed cameras is what gets me. They want some of them to stretch up to 6 miles. For some reason they decided to throw away the statistics that say most accidents are caused by lack of observations, not 'speeding'. By making people even more conscious of their speed, you're distracting them from the road and making it more dangerous.

Away from motorways, a LOT of deaths are caused by speeding. My uncle wouldn't have died if the car he was in was going 70 (speed limit was 60), but going 92 his head was found fully 19 feet from his leg.

But yeah, 50 is a little low.

50mph is hardly problematic. I see no real cause for concern.

A mile or two down this road (and it was a road by the time):



his dumbass friend tried to go as fast as he could, it was determined that the speed they reached was between 90 and 95 mph with a car going in the opposite direction at an unexpectedly sharp turn. My uncle and his two friends died, as did the mother and 4 children in the other car, the driver lived though. He's in a mental hospital as of January though, fun times.

I thought you were doing medicine? He would have been fucked if the car was doing 60, despite the fact that it is mostly determined on the type of car it was.

No, it's 70 on dual carriageways and 60 on single. If anyone asks you what the NSL is, it's 70.

Ridiculous. We need to get our priorities straight regarding traffic laws. Speeding does not cause accidents. The German autobahn has no speed limit, and they have so few accidents compared to United States highways, it's almost embarrassing.

If the police want to curb accident rates, they need to stop worrying about harmless speeders who do 78 in a 65 on a wide open highway with zero traffic volume, and start to worry about the slow pokes who drive while they text on their phone, talk on their phone, eat as they drive, and especially the slow ass drivers in the left lane who refuse to acknowledge that the left lane is for passing and fast traffic.

Speed cameras are a joke, they cause accidents, they do not prevent them. How many times have I seen someone driving safely above the speed limit, when he spots a speed camera and slams on his brakes, causing me to slam on my brakes, causing the next guy to slam on his brakes, until a single person, not paying attention, rear ends the guy ahead of him.

I drive what I deem a safe speed for the conditions and traffic volume, regardless of the speed limit. But at minimum, I go 5 above in the city and 10 above on the highway. But, if it's 2 AM and nobody is on the interstate, I can safely drive 100mph+ without any trouble.

That's slow, yeah, but get over it. Americans have been breaking a 55mph speed limit for decades.

But can sombody explain to me WTF is the difference between a "non-motorway," a "motorway," a "dual carriageway" and anything else you Brits call roads? We just have "roads" and "highways/freeways" here. Can you only take a horse and/or buggy on a "non-motorway" and a carriage on a "carriageway?"
