Point­less to im­pose new speed limit

The Oban Times - - Letters -

Sir, With re­gard to the 50mph speed limit about to be posted be­tween Bal­lachul­ish and Fort Wil­liam, I re­spect­fully sub­mit that it’s a waste of time, money and ma­te­ri­als.

First, it’s go­ing to cut down over­tak­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties for driv­ers try­ing to pass slow-mov­ing car­a­vans and other ve­hi­cles.

When you over­take, you want to do it quickly so you have more time to get back to your own side of the road.

Se­condly, it’s go­ing to slow down the tourists even more, and we don’t need that.

And, thirdly, there are very few places on that par­tic­u­lar piece of road where one can safely ex­ceed 50 any­way, so what’s the point?

Davie Kerr, Onich.
