    I mean if the speed limit is 70, you will drive 50mph. What reason is there for doing this even tho its an open road, fine weather and none of those mini people around that everyone loves to protect.

    The speed limit is a guideline for the speed you should be driving in bad conditions, in built up areas, near kids or animals or when the pigs are about. Otherwise just drive properly please.

    I know slow drivers are horrible to be behind but if everyone just slowed down a little, road accidents would plummet.

    You will always get road accidents in the same way you will always get numpties. Its just that accidents are far more impressive at high speeds.

    Most speed limits were introduced when roads and cars were a lot less safe than they are nowadays, too.

    Doesn't the Autobahn or however you spell it not have a speed limit and it has a very low frequency of accidents?

    It's one of the things that winds me up the most. If anything it causes more accidents because you're ****ing people off and they become impatient.

    Let's not forget that on a driving test, you can get minors for "inappropriate speed" which includes going too slow.

    The people who annoy me most on the road are not those that drive slowly, it's those who only drive at one speed. 40mph through a village, through a town, on the bypass, on a dual carriageway A-road... Those are the people who should be made to forfeit their car on the spot.

    The times I drive slowly is when I'm forced to be behind one of these slowpokes!

    Slow driving is not necessarily safe driving and vice versa.
