I’d dispute that.
I agree that the 80/90 break up is an entire mess.
The factor is that extreme velocity makes accidents extra seemingly and worsens their outcomes; that shouldn’t be controversial and is backed by loads of proof.
The village the place we have now the home has just lately put in some velocity calming measures (they went with chicanes the place the highway enters the village). They did so after some velocity monitoring – regardless of a 50kph restrict, dropping to 30kph within the centre of the village many drivers have been recorded at over 100kph by way of the village – I’m afraid that slightly suggests you’re fallacious about “wise drivers”.
By the way in which that’s going straight from the nationwide restrict (80 in our case, in all probability 90 when the monitoring was performed) into the village with no distracting indicators (simply the village title submit which robotically publicizes a 50kph restrict, and the Zone 30 signal a bit afterward).
It’s nonetheless a small minority that drive past their potential and the highway situations. These folks will all the time drive badly and trigger a lot of the accidents however all of us get swept up within the ever tighter velocity enforcement. I drove for a residing all my working life and by no means brought about an accident doing 30,000 + miles per yr for 35 years of wise driving, I in all probability bought 4 or 5 dashing tickets in over 1 million miles. But I’ve now had 2 dashing fines within the final 25,000 miles and 5 years. Am I a worse driver now? I’m actually extra paranoid!
It’s a really, very giant minority that do in my neck of the woods
There’s a diploma of integration in some vehicles. For instance my automobile makes use of GPS and studying highway indicators to determine the restrict (as a result of the GPS will not be updated) which it shows on the windscreen together with precise velocity, if I exceed the restrict the restrict discreetly flashes, that sufficient for me With increasingly more vehicles having a level of autonomous driving extra integration, for higher or worse, will come.
I feel that’s all of the system has to do by regulation.
The mazda (2016) satnav exhibits the llimit which turns crimson if you happen to go over.
The S3, apparently, does sod all (until you ask it to set the max cruise velocity from the present highway restrict).
I don’t perceive, absolutely you simply put the velocity limiter (cruise management?) on to regardless of the restrict is and you may’t velocity, not less than that’s the way it works on my automobile.
Yep, final month I misplaced 1 level for doing 88 in what I assumed was a 90 restrict. It had been 90 however I missed the restrict change on the N147. I’ve travelled the identical highway since and the velocity does range between 80 and 90.
I dont exceed 80 anyplace now apart from auto route once I set my velocity limiter to 100.
