I think the word "always" is stretching it a bit. There was a time when there were no speed limits at all. :wink2:

 

Just because you can't remember it doesn't mean it isn't so. :wink2:

 

Ok it has been this way from when you past your test - unless of course you are the same age as Flure!

Sad to see someone who cant come back from a loss... totally defeated, rolling over... totally negative.

 

 

He is just posting a fact. Even if we all bounce back and try to counter it they will decide in the end of the day. That doesn't mean we all have to stop trying but it remains a reality.

Average speed cameras on the dualled section between Stirling & Perth is a fecking disgrace IMO. 

 

Nothing but a money making scheme that'll do feck all to make the road safer. 

 

Totally agree there is no reason for this stretch to have them

 

People who think driving faster than 70mph is "dangerous" make me lol.

 

Indeed. It is about the driving conditions not speed

 

What i find "mental" is that a motorist doesn't know that. It's basic knowledge that i'd expect even non-drivers to know. 

 

I am absolutely astonished (copywrite J Lamont.)  :blink:

 

 

I suppose it comes down to when you passed your test. I am pretty sure that when I passed my test ( a wee while ago) the speed limit was either 30 or 70 unless there are signs saying otherwise. I assume some roads have been downgraded to 60 at some point. Nae idea when that happened. Nobody told me.

 

It has always been like this nothing has changed. I think maybe dementia is setting in ;)

 

Not if you are lying on a mortuary slab having got your braking distances wrong! Or caused someone else to crash with a dangerous overtake.

 

That is about bad driving not speed people can do these things while still staying under the speed limit.

Johan Lamont may be many things but she is not an idiot. She might have done a reasonable job in convincing a lot of folk that she is, but she isn't.

 

 

No idea what you base that on  :blink:

aaargh, yes. or people at airports who stand right next to the conveyor belt with their trolley so you cant get near it. grrrr....

 

 

Indeed! Even stading next to it without the trolley is annoying and unecessary. If everyone just kept back and stepped forward just to take their bag off it would be much more civilised.

 

Another annoying airport thing is people who stand on the moving walkway and block it with their bag. The walkway is not so you don't have to walk it is sio you can get there quicker you lazy f*ckers!
