I agree, propaganda/spin/viral bollox. The paperwork would overwhelm the system with such a low limit. Will maintain my 'limit plus 10%' philosophy for areas known for being festooned with cameras and general common sense elsewhere. Obviously where there's a posted variable limit just a notch over if it's clear to do so, I believe that in these instances the tolerance is lower though plenty seem to still get away with going through with a wider margin.
Of course I so rarely use the mentioned stretches of the motorway network that if it is true NIPs will be landing on doormats long before I venture onto them
On the subject of speed I had to motor down to Thame yesterday.
Google forecast 2 hours in advance of me going.
I drove down in the low 50s being as mean with the taps as I could because I was doing a fuel economy test and got there in 2:03.
New theory, there is a mean speed to the traffic and it’s inefficient to try to beat it as by going faster I’m just ensuring I’ll have a stop further down the road. Bit like boom and bust. And it’s a lot less stressful.
I agree about the stress Rawhide. My van had a 62mph limiter fitted by a previous owner and I thought I'd remove it as soon as possible. It's so stress free travelling at a maximum of 62mph I decided to keep the limiter. Journey times seem to remain the same.
