A WHILE ago I was driving too fast in a school zone just before the time expired.
The reason I was speeding: I did not see the 40km/h limit sign.
It was set a long way from the school and at least 3m off the ground — a good height if you were driving a double-decker bus from the top level.
I was looking at my speedometer, the road, the traffic and the pedestrians, not up in the air.
The result of this little incident with the man in blue is that I now drive with one eye on the speedo and the other scaling the surroundings for speed signs.
I amdefinitely not as safe a driver as I used to be.
My friends all complain of the same thing.
I wonder how long it will be before politicians realise that they cannot go on criminalising the driving public in an effort to pay off the debt they accumulated through mismanagement, and then pretend it is resulting in safer roads.
