Stop the goverments proposed 50 MPH speed limit!

Post  Atthelimit on Mon Mar 16, 2009 9:24 pm

Your help is needed

I hope that you donít view this as misuse of the website, but I believe that this is something that you may well be interested in. There is a proposal to reduce national speed limits to 50 MPH (& even restrict all the currently de-restricted country roads to 40 MPH). This is a massively naÔve proposal, that will not serve to significantly reduce deaths or improve emissions , but will in many cases increase journey times and reduce the countryís efficiency and so I urge you to sign it. This does imply that you condone speeding, just that you donít want your motoring to become more restricted by inappropriate speed cameras and legislationÖ

Please click on the link below to sign the following petition:

http://petitions.number10.gov.uk/noNSLreduction/

The petition reads:

We the undersigned petition the Prime Minister to NOT reduce the national speed limit to 50mph. Following the announcement that the government is planning to reduce the national speed limit to 50 miles per hour, we the undersigned oppose this, since it will make no difference to road deaths and the cut in carbon emissions is so insignificantly small it's laughable.

The following are links to articles that appeared in The Times and Autocar

I'm not advocating speeding but if this one slips through we may as well have a man walking in front of the car with a red flag.

The only good news is my 1972 VW camper might just be able to keep up with the traffic, but on balance I will vote no to a 50 mph speed limit!
