    Get rid of cars so we can get on with it.

    They asked for ideas two or three weeks ago.
    I gave them mine.
    Received a couple of ‘likes’.
    Comments disappeared, was then unable to comment further, then FB link disappeared.
    I imagine ‘raise the speed limit’ and ‘make practical driving test a comprehensive test’ were classed as swearing by the Road Safety Council.

    Yeah, unless it involves more speed cameras, they aren't interested.

    It's a proven failed tactic, that will continue to be placed on repeat until no-one has a license any more.

    No, they'll never take everyone's license away - there's too much money to be made from speeding fines. If *everybody* stopped speeding tomorrow, the government would be totally fucked. Make no mistake, with all the talk about Safety This, & Safety That, if they REALLY wanted to reduce the incidents of speeding they would. And it wouldn't include fucking hidden speed cameras.

    Yes, replace the word "safety" with "revenue" in everything you read and hear about what they want to do on the road, and it makes much more sense and reads far more clearly.

    I’d be concerned about whatever brain damage infests that group being contagious.
    “Crashing is shit for you, shit for the bike, shit for the mechanics and shit for the set-up,” Checa told me a while back. “It’s a signal that you are heading in the wrong direction. You want to win but crashing is the opposite. It’s like being in France when you want to go to England and when you crash you go to Spain. That way you’ll never get to England!” -- Carlos Checa
