It wasn't remotely a test drive. " Relentless war on speed". That wasn't your usual Jezza rant more an indicator of what is happening. Speed is the baddie, speeders are evil.

65% of road deaths have speed as a factor in their cause - "a" factor.

When you change that statement to speed as a factor AND the speed was in excess of the legal limit, the figure drops to 12% !!

It isn't exceeding the speed limit that's dangerous, it's inappropriate speed whether under or over the legal limits.

53% of all deaths where speed was a factor were under the legal speed limit. So what are the Authorities doing about the majority of deaths? Absolutely fack all. And you believe these muppets on any subject?!!
