Why can't they adopt a sensible system like in Australia where the speed limits around the schools during school arrival, departure and lunch times are limited to 20mph or less and at all other times are 30mph or 35mph (whichever is safer for the road depending on its width and number of bends etc). Please can someone explain Why it is nessecary to have to drive at 20mph through a long road at 10pm at night for example when there are absolutely no children about? This system works very well in other countries and helps keep traffic moving when it gets to work finishing time at 5pm for example. ANSWER: Because it would be harder to police and the states want us to have to drive around so slowly it would be quicker for us to walk so we don't bother!! - Any other thoughts on this one?
