    Me neither, in general it seems like a decent idea. Its going to send some people completely batty though.

    It's a shame, because if people could just get over themselves and accept it the roads would be a much better place.

    It's only rebellion and being told what to do that upsets.

    Go somewhere where the road culture has accepted that roads aren't just for cars and you'll see the difference.

    I quite agree, there is something peculiar about some nationalities, the British included, whereby we seem to have largely accepted the ascendancy of the car as the only way to get about.

    Sorry, I should have said. VBC started an identical thread, so I merged the two. I couldn't find the bit where you could put in an explanation.

    I think it's a good idea, but not for a safety perspective but from the perspective that it will encourage more people to cycle as they will keep seeing bikes overtaking them more, and will take the "well if you can't beat 'em, join 'em" stance.


    Although I think Jon Perez has got a good point on the BBC HYS:
    This would undoubtedly reduce the number of deaths drastically. The politically correct mumbo-jumbo liberal brigade will whinge that "civil liberties are being eroded" and that "rights are being trampled on", but it's for everyone's benefit.

    and, masterEloso has got a good point aswell:

    thinking about it if they did have 20mph limits in towns it'd mean i'd only have to use 2 different gears in my van most of the time, 'high' and 'low' :rolleyes: :biggrin:

    Or kids in cars/kids on bikes/kids trying to cross a road inhabited bypossessive neanderthals who don't realise how much more comfortable things would be for non-car-drivers if they weren't so self-obsessed, inconsiderate and ignorantly dangerous?
