The good news is that the roads will soon go back to the dirty, clogged, nose-to-tail perma-jam they all were before! Can't wait. That'll put the mockers on a lot of the Ton Up Kids. (In fairness, if you will go around selling Audis etc etc to a whole load of very ordinary kids, that'll readily go a hundred and fifty plus and handle like a racing car, and then expect them to stick to the speed limit, when they're suddenly given the (to them) God Given opportunity of an apparently empty road, then you're more naive than perhaps is good for you! But Hey, the nation's economy (in the form of truely colossal amounts of credit, lent to the aforementioned ordinary kids, to get hold of crazily high performance cars) comes before any pointless, namby-pamby, socialist-leaning, wooly notions like pedestrians' or cyclists' safety.
