"The simple maths is: reduce the speed, reduce the severity of a collision that occurs.' Says John Siddle of Lincolnshire Road Safety Partnership. Read John Siddle's simplistic rationale
Oh well John why not have no speed at all?Road Safety Nirvana but killing everyone from the resulting economic collapse. But who says the limits are correct and appropriate John? And that there are no entrapment style enticement sites that cause speeding that can be cured? Oh so let us be simplistic and ask if 'speeding' causes accidents, where were the accompanying 50,000 accidents to go with these speeders?
Most accidents are below the limits anyway and that is because it isn't 'speeding' that causes them but driving too fast at any speed. So instead of mitigating the results of accidents after they have occurred, as John suggests, how about focusing more on what actually causes them? Ok so there won't be any money and income from that but at least it will be genuine road safety unlike John Siddle's version of it.
