But then again some people think vans and minibuses are under the same NSL as cars
"Some people"? I think you will find that applies to "most people" who drive vans, certainly seems to in my neck of the woods and don't get me started on minibuses
As to the 80 limit, I think in general the speed people drive at seems to have dropped due to the ever rising cost of fuel, certainly on the motorways round here anyway, which bizarrely is where you can save fuel more easily than you can on short hops to the shops/school etc.
I wonder if anyone would have noticed had they just raised the limit and not mentioned it in the press?
I did hear a recent quote from Tiff Needell along the lines of, "surely now that cars have more safety devices does it not make sense" cars not the problem Tiff, drivers still make the mistakes not the cars, bit like "dangerous roads" still the drivers fault not the roads
2.5 Million miles of non-advanced but hopefully safe driving, not ready to quit yet
