do these adverts ever make much difference?
i was a loon (a safe loon like most other young lad with a powerful car), even as a professional driver in vans, 7.5t tippers etc, i’d do what they could do as there was always a hurry. 6 points in as many weeks slowed me down.
i think we all slow as we get older, to a degree anyways, you’ll rarely see me below 80=90 on a clear dual/motorway, when we get too old we’re a danger!
the thing is knowing when to slow down, and when you can drive fast, and as mr clarkson says, it’s not speed that kills, it’s the stopping very suddenly that does it.
ps, i don’t condone speeding, i just hate sitting around at 30 in a 60, that’s when things are more likely to go wrong.
