The comments are above are pretty entertaining but a little wide of the mark in a number of cases. Personally, I feel that the speed limit on the main roads seems to work. To a dgree the same can be said for minor roads, but in built up areas they need to be rationalised and reduced in a number of case, for the safety of other road users and pedestrians. Specifically regarding the schools, why not just set a low speed limit near them all, regardless of the time of day or year. There is no real reason why having to drive slowly for a short stretch of road should be too difficult or costly for anyone and it would be a lot cheaper than electronic signs. I am tired of hearing people whine about their rights or the fact that the States shouldn't be dictating things like this. If everyone could sensibly handle the speed on our roads then there would be no road accidents, but as the evidence shows that this is not the case then the States need to come up with an effective plan. Many other islands operate lower speed limits than Guernsey and it works just fine. Speeders will still ignore the rules to suit themselves but they should man-up and just accept their punishment if caught, rather than subjecting us to even more whining.
