Lack Of Road Safety Strategy...

Recommended Posts

I complained to the police that oiks near where I live were consistently parking at the entrance to a back lane, wiping their arses on the yellow lines and sticking two fingers up were an ambulance or fire-engine ever to need access. It is illegal. Full stop. Instead, I had to enter into a debate with an under-educated young constable about the rights and wrongs of the situation which has never improved since I raised it. What's the point of road markings if they are not enforced?

The main point of ABS is to retain control during braking and avoid a skid, not to reduce braking distance.

Dear me.

I use my brakes to stop the vehicle because that's what they are there for.

What part of "ABS gives a shorter stopping distance" is it that you don't understand?

I still drive a vehicle without power assisted brakes (and steering) and boy do you know it....

That is all.

If your ABS has activated you've already lost control HTH.

bullshit in real terms,   things coming into crosby  may be 1 or 2 mph over the limit according to the flashy sign,  but that thing aint accurate,  and how anything can speed in a meaningful manner during the rushless hour queue is beyond me, pushbikes make better progress than cars.

Exactly, the actual meaningfulness of any traffic survey actually comes down to the accuracy the evaluation of the data collected.
