Speeding query

SIR - It was nice to learn that, on average, we are, as a body, law-abiding motorists, as reported last week.

However, I think the object of the exercise should have been to quantify the number of speeding motorists who can potentially cause injury.

If five motorists drive sensibly, say, at 25mph and one at 55 mph, you have a nice average of 30mph, which may bring a note of comfort and self satisfaction to the public at large.

Would it not be more informative if the full results were published so that we can see the true picture for ourselves and draw our own conclusions?

Without any scientific measurement, I would wager at least one in 10 drivers exceed the speed limit on Sidford High Street during peak travel times.
