I think this paragraph of the report says it all really "It is considered that the majority of motorists travel around the Island at speeds they consider feel safe and appropriate as opposed to paying significant attention to the limits unless they are heavily enforced." Have strictly enforced limits past schools, the hospital etc. where the most vulnerable road users are and set everything else to a more reasonable 40 mph (about the upper average speed recorded in the report). Also penalise drivers who have an accident more harshly if excessive speed (note, not speeding) was a major contributory factor. Enforce the 40mph limit to deal with the 'boy racers' that everyone is concerned about. It's interesting how things have changed since the report was written - e.g. "As regards enforcement, it was noted that the Police were unlikely to introduce speed cameras and had few resources available to carry out ad-hoc speed checks because of reprioritisation of officers elsewhere within the force to the detriment of the Traffic Section." I think this Summer has demonstrated that is no longer the case!
