Slow drivers often speed

Share this article

I find myself slightly amused and perhaps many others will agree, with Mr Abbott’s letter about people wanting to drive to the speed limit.

On many occasions, I’ve found myself slightly frustrated by someone doing 35-40mph in national speed limit areas. However, enter a 30mph area and guess what? They carry on doing the same speed.

The result is when I have slowed to 30mph, they speed away. I meant of course, speed, as in break the speed limit. Perhaps it is the case that those who love to do 40mph everywhere are simply unaware of the speed limits?

It’s a pity we can’t get ‘likes’ for these letters as on Facebook, because then we would know how much support is shown for the subjects covered.
