That’s sort of the point - it’s a pretty solid deterrent, or mind focusser if you are hammering along with your house on the line If it goes wrong. 

I would have thought getting decapitated or smashing into a lamp post would already be a mind focusser but apparently not, it is being under insured that will make them ride safely.

Me too, but I think there tends to be a 'I'll be fine and the bike/car is insured.." attitude amongst some.

I'd support making 50 mph the maximum limit permanently. The coast road, like all our major roads, is a rural A road and it has numerous villages and settlements along the way, many bends and hazards and  quite poor surfaces in places. It is really unsuitable for high speeds.
