Safe at 60mph
10:50am Monday 7th October 2013 in Letters
WOULDN’T it be a better life, especially on York roads, if people were not so hell-bent on passing the vehicle in front, regardless of traffic conditions, speed limits, how many seconds they are going to save if any, and how many risks they are prepared to take with split second manoeuvres without any consideration for other drivers?
The roads were never intended as racetracks where you prove yourself as the fastest driver in the biggest, fastest car. If you want to prove yourself that way, there are motorways where you can risk being caught and pay the price.
I prefer to stick to speed limits, 50mph on bigger roads, and stay in the inside lanes at 60mph with the lorries on motorways. I consider this as the most economical and reasonable, most considerate and fastest way of getting about, safely and with less stress.
