Hardly! Some 20mph limits are good. The People's Republic of Lambeth has got it wrong with its blanket 20mph limit - it simply can't work. 20mph along Denmark Hill??

Nothing much was ever enforced as a 30mph - a lot of speed cameras have been removed. There is zero evidence of 20 mph limits being enforced either, or ever likely to be - same as the old limits. In fact, nothing in the Borough of Croydon ever seems to be enforced; speed, yellow/double yellow lines, smoking at bus/tram stops, litter bugs discarding their McDonalds wrapping and dimwits dropping cigarette buts along North End, the list goes on. :moo: Self-centred, anti-social behaviour is the accepted norm. But I digress.

Selective 20mph limits like in Croydon are better, particularly around schools or on residential backstreets with cars parked on both sides. Trouble is, neither 20 or 30mph limits ever seem to be enforced. My mother's road in New Addington (still 30mph limit) is a case in point. The basket-case yobbos use it as a race-track. Someone will be killed along there before long. Minimum speed of most vehicles along it is 40 to 45 mph as a conservative estimate, simply because they realise the chances of being caught are nil.

Some of us hope it will lead to a better, safer environment. With some attitudes it would seem hope is all we have.

As well as spend every waking hour at work, hospital, school, scouts, cricket, football, disco's, church parade etc.

Round here it's slow on the straight bits but no change in speed round bends or through villages which means they are far too slow on derestricted roads but break the speed limit through villages. Never can work that out even though I'm becoming old.

When you become a responsible parent and you're driving around passengers more often.

You then have to consider the comfort of those in the back, which means you stop throwing your car around and become generally smoother/slower in your driving style.

If you mean the really slow pensioner drivers, that's possibly due to them driving so infrequently that they lose confidence? A relative calls them 'Sunday hat drivers', because the worst ones invariably do actually wear a hat!

I'm 61 so I guess I qualify. I know I drive slower and more cautious than I did.

I put it down to I'm not in such a hurry to get where I'm going, I know my reactions are slower, I've had enough tickets in my life, I don't need any more.

Mostly though for some reason, I think there are enough things in life pending that are going to cut it short at any minute, I don't need to contribute another to the list.

I'm a few years behind H, not as many as I'd like if truth be told, but I don't count myself as old. Yet. However, I have definitely slowed down whilst behind the wheel.
A couple of years back I very nearly lost my license and it was only the hiring of an expensive lawyer that saved the day. Basically I had accumulated too many speeding tickets in too short a time. Anyway, the result of this was that I began to question why I was rushing around all the time. I mean 2 of the tickets i had got on the WAY to work FFS!! Who the **** rushes to work??? Well obviously i was.
So I decided to try not rushing. I left for work 5 mins earlier, I decided if I was going to be late to somewhere, **** it, I was going to be late, whatever, I just decided to slow down. To combat the boredom of not Ayrton Senna-ering it down the motorway or round the houses, I started to listen to books and podcasts in the car. Now I look forward to the commute not for for the adrenaline but for the relaxation of me and a good book.
So I admit I'm annoying slow driver. The rest of you, live with it.

Hedgehog 05-07-2017 02:39 AM

Good points... Except I find a lot people "rushing" to work in the morning, and the drive in the evening being a little calmer. I've also noticed that if I'm on the freeways really early in the morning people drive like maniacs! Later in the morning nobody is going anywhere in a hurry due to grid lock so I guess they make the most of it.

Roads would be safer with people not walking in them. They're for cars.

Roads near me which are 20mph have loads of crossings, both islands and lights. And how many people are too lazy to walk to the nearest one? Most.

And what impression does that give the kids they're dragging behind them? That it's OK to just cross wherever you want and stand in the middle of a road away from an island while cars drive either side of you?

For every road casualty caused by a car, there are equal amounts caused by twats not looking where they're going when they cross a road.

It's not speeds that kill - it's shit drivers and ignorant pedestrians.

All absolutely true.

People cross often with total disregard to safely, often yards from a crossing when the safe thing to do would be to walk a few extra yards, where they have right of way or can stop traffic legally. Similarly, crossing when the pedestrian light shows red. Again I will cite what I have heard about the USA, where such idiots are fined, I believe. You cannot protect people from their own stupidity. I seriously doubt the average IQ is still 100, but again I digress.

People walking the road where there is an adequate footway are endangering all. In the countryside where there is no footpath, there are still rules to observe, but it requires a bit of brain for all, i.e. allow for the fact there may be people in the road by the bend you cannot see around. See "shit drivers".

My argument here is about boy (and girl!) racers ("shit drivers") and excessive speed in built-up areas. This has to be discouraged. You are much more likely to be seriously injured at 30mph as at 20mph; 40mph is quite likely to result in death. On residential roads, people deserve to protected and deserve more enforcement of these rules. If it slows down your journey by a few minutes - tough! Leave a few minutes earlier.

Edit: The last comments were not aimed at you personally, they were a general observation.

Edit: The last comments were not aimed at you personally, they were a general observation.

The issue is though, that these 20mph spots seem to be either blanket (like 5 London Boroughs have done) or appear to be random, or completely miss the actual accident hotspots.

For example, to turn into my road there is a lane for people turning. The corner it is on is really tight and can be difficult to see around. There are regular car accidents there (you'd have to have a zero IQ as a pedestrian to cross there). Cars drive way too fast around the bend and cut the corner into the turn lane. This area leads onto a row of busy shops and a park the other side of the road. There is one light at the far end. Making this area 20mph plus adding some traffic islands on the bend would slow everyone down and cut down accidents.

Instead, they've taken the wide, perfectly straight piece of road a bit further down and made it 20mph AND added pedestrian islands... and added speed cameras.

Bendy dangerous roads clearly aren't a priority, so you can see maybe why I'm veering towards revenue generation as much as safety.

Wall-to-wall tennis BBC1 AND BBC2 from noon to night, only interrupted for the news (depressing) and Eastenders (even more depressing). And on the 'Red Button' too!

Was glad that Screechapova is not there again, but happened upon Vesnina v Azarenka. Sounds more like a porn movie than a tennis match. Had to mute it. Time points were docked for the affected moaning and screeching.

The fact that everytime I say something to my wife her first response is "Aye?" "Sorry?" "Pardon?" "What was that?"............but if I rustle my packet of Galaxy Minstrels or salted caramel cashews in bed (that's not a euphemism either!) she hears it from the the living room, despite the telly blaring, and is up the stairs quicker than a greyhound Derby winner!

The crowd at wimbledon are a complete bunch of simpletons. Someone plays a simple lob shot and its all gasp, oooh, ahhh. Shut the **** up.

Not to mention the oh so funny attention seeking ***** who shout out between points

on that subject, any football fan that takes part in one of these needs to be handed a 5 year FBO.

Indeed. In the Copa America a couple of years back my wife asked why I wasn't participating. I didn't really get my message across with the raised eyebrow and withering look.

I saw a bloke just last weekend with that emblazoned on his chest when taking my little girl swimming. You just know that they're a wrong-un and it basically means they don't want to take responsibility for all the nasty sh*t they've put other people through.

I got to say the whole tattoo obsession per se leaves me cold. Mrs Bubbs is on number 3 and counting. Find it hard to garner any enthusiasm when she asks me what I think of it after she's done it.

How strange. I'm watching one of Reggie Yates' documentaries and he's just revealed that he has a tattoo saying 'Never forget, never regret' :).

In fairness, he does come across as a genuine bloke, but there's no excuse for the tattoo.

Tennis commentators who overreact as if the player has had his leg broken/shot, when in reality the've skidded on their foot and possibly twisted their ankle (slightly).

On the subject of Wimbledon...ANDREW BLOODY CASTLE!!

Knobhead extrodinaire for one...:jerkit:

but why the BBC have him as the main commentator God only knows. He just doesn't get the craft of commentating.

Anyone calling a screen a Jumbotron :wallbash:

I believe after the cup final last year they were focusing in on a Palace fan and he did the "cut" action with his hand across his throat.

Said to myself, "Well done son".

My local fish and chippy - previously, eating in, food on a plate with metal cutlery.
Now - in a cardboard box with pygmy-sized plastic cutlery.

People who tattoo their heads. Why???

henryhallandhisbasque 06-07-2017 11:54 AM

Using the Scan and Shop option at Tesco, putting all the shopping away in bags, reaching the payment area and finding the scanning gun has crashed and all record of what you've scanned in has disappeared.

There was a bloke on the platform at East Croydon station in rush hour this morning with Op-u-lence tattooed on his neck.

I don't normally associate work, East Croydon, trains or Southern with opulence.

I feel your pain. Also when walking, how do some women (ahem, perhaps the more obese) manage to flap their arms out so wide? It makes them almost impossible to pass in crowded areas despite their snail like pace.

As seen on the neck of a young man at East Midlands airport - 'Sleep when your dead'

What a spoon.

Just laid some Self Levelling Compound and the wife spilt water all over it before it had gone off grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr.

I have "many a slip 'twixt cup and lip" tattooed on the underside of my dick. Is that the kind of thing you mean?

Doubly bad if he made the grammar mistake too.

evvo111 06-07-2017 06:03 PM

Roy Larner - I still believe he didn't even know the ones he 'attacked' were terrorists. He just saw an Arsenal shirt and a brown face and that was enough to set his brain cell off.

Yes! I was going to say exactly the same thing. The most meaningless, overused, cheesy cliched 'quote' going.

Ironic that seeing people with that line tattooed immediately makes me judge them and think they must be a ****.

The Millwall fan who apparently took on the terrorists at London Bridge.
