A Dose of Reality

If you drive down the Broadway in Didcot you will encounter.

  • 7 traffic lights
  • 2 major roundabouts
  • 4 mini roundabouts
  • 1 zebra crossing
  • restricted width for about 200m
  • illegally parked cars

The Broadway is about a mile long and if you try to drive at 30mph you will be continually breaking and accelerating and you will average about 12mph. You will use more fuel, create more pollution, and make your vehicle more dangerous to pedestrians and cyclists and you will arrive at the end at the same time.

If you only accelerated to 20mph between obstructions there will be less pollution, the vehicle will not be so damaging in the event of a collision with a pedestrian or cyclist, you will save yourself money and arrive at your destination at the same time. Driving at 30mph in residential areas does not give a single benefit to anyone. More

Feargal is worth following.

The Tories have polluted our rivers and seas, they have decimated the NHS, they have wrecked the economy and now the schools are falling to bits. Every country has a Mafia but the UK seems to be the only one that votes them into power.
