Last 2 years have been fatality free I believe 

Maybe the police strategy, combined with fewer unrestricted parts of the circuit is having a positive effect? I don't envy them their task.

Restrictions throughout the island have had an effect, such as the 50mph limit on the Douglas to Ramsey coast road too.

 Also speed cameras would help bring in extra revenue. 

You think? I've been flashed on UK motorways with Manx plates by speed cameras and never heard anything about it. I don't think the vehicle info is shared. Bikers would have to be stopped and ticketed I think. Non local ones that is.

Ooi, and in case you were wondering, KSIs on the signs means Killed or Seriously Injured(s) at that point. I was for a while. Wondering that is, not KSIed. Interesting really, for example 50 KSIs  in 5 years seems very high.

What are you comparing this with? 

He said 50 in five years on the mountain seems high (well, he didn’t actually say that but I think that’s what he means)

I am showing that the island of Jersey has the figures above on their little 40mph roads, so it really doesn’t seem high at all to me for a main road with no speed limit which is a Mecca for motorsport tourists.

If people do think it seems high and they don’t want to take that risk then they can go the other way.
