I was just talking to someone about the route I tend to use, to get into London. He was talking about the fact that the Met are responsible for policing the speed limits. That reminded me of an incident that happened a few weeks ago as I was riding through. I passed a rider on the climb up to the top of Sawyers hill, as I did, he muttered something under his breath, and tried ( but failed ) to catch me up. As I was getting to the top, and heading for the descent to the exit, I clocked a fully marked police car, coming in the opposite direction. I was then very careful to watch my speed on the descent. Who comes barrelling past me, overtaking the car in front of me in the process, at well over the speed limit, in the full knowledge that there are police about? That’s right, the guy I passed climbing the hill a few minutes earlier. Personally I wouldn’t do what he did, even if there wasn’t a speed limit there, and plod about, just because of the deer, if for no other reason. It did make me chuckle.
