Tbh I think the new law may just have slow many people down in general as you become more aware of speed when you move up to 30 or 40 mph on urban roads. Having driven around since the law came in I can’t notice any difference eg no aggression or tailgating etc . Personally I would have thought Wales had issues to deal with and speed of getting from A to B isn’t a proper issue affecting the state of the country- it’s a habit change to me.

The irony when I read on social media people moaning about the cost of all this then laughing when the signs get torn down. To be replaced using more money.

Quite a few crudely daubed over in a stretch of road in Gowerton heading towards Dunvant . Bit quieter there for the late night criminal damage. Pathetic stuff.

Surely one of the points here is that the petition is or may have passed 1/2 million signatures whereas i believe 10,000 were needed for it to be discussed at the senydd only for dripford to say there is to be no going back well surely that's what democracy is all about?

There is no democracy in Wales.

Been in Edinburgh these last few nights. Took a taxi into the suburbs to see clients and once out of the busy parts, it was very speedy although never fear-inducing.

We complimented the driving and saying it reminded us of being in Italy. We enquired about the speed relative to the limits. Of the 20 mph zones, he said, “Och! No one pay any attention to those”.

I see Sunak is looking into reversing the changes. In fact he’s promising a few sane looking things that can get him votes. You could swear there’s a general election next year.

Too late for the Whisky Museum. I think I had an evening there a few years ago, pre-Covid. It was most entertaining. Some of the folk there exceeded their capacity a bit too quickly for their own good, if it’s the same place I am thinking of.

Have just left Peterborough to head across the Fens to the more scenic parts of East Anglia.

I find myself driving slower overall. Not just on the 20mph zone but because I’m too slow to process multiple speed limits around my home so sort of pick the lowest one and stick to it 😊

1 mile right out of my drive it’s 30-60-40-20-40-60.

1 mile left it’s 30-60-20-60-20-40-60

I can really identify with that feeling. There seems to be too much variation of speed limits in short distances . Hopefully this will all be looked at over the next year 🙏

To be honest between the speed bumps and the potholes in gowerton 20mph is an achievement.
