    It's simply more civilised too, it's a far more pleasant environment without twats using crowded public roads as their very own racetrack.

    Quite right to raise this, how horrid of the Evil Dark Lords of Murdoch to drag her into it.

    I dare say they also conjectured callously about her mental stability, age, confusion, knowledge of road safety issues and understanding of what they quote her as saying.

    Hanging (or similar) is too good (or bad) for anyone who would make such grotesque assumptions about the woman and what it is she does or doesn't understand.

    No wonder our jails are so full!

    It's fitting that The Sun could only dredge up Armstrong to support their load of old twaddle- she's the person who moderates the sfaespeed website where posters joke about killing cyclists and say that speed camera firms "deserve" to have letter bombs sent to them.

    Average speed dropped by just 1mph in the South Bristol 20mph zone. Without enforcement it is a complete waste of time.

    StuartG slower but further

    Location:
    SE London
    The London study puts the enforcement down as the installation of passive speed restraints (aka sleeping policemen). If so they are remarkably effective if a bit of a pain. Did they not do this in Bristol?
