Interesting Alan, are these motorists sticking to the speed limit. Our now ninety year old used to drive to his daughters in Swindon every week and keep to the 40mph. The traffic was always flying past at about 50mph or more. He was stopped by the police. He knew they thought he had been drinking, of course he didnít as he does not drink. They wondered why he was driving slower, he said he was doing the right mph. They agreed and apologised. His daughter then banned him from driving to Swindon as being a nurse on the district she was well aware no one takes any notice of mph. I think he was 87 at the time.
