Ok, so it isn’t officially the new national speed limit, but I am beginning to think that it is the speed limit adopted by the public for this year.

There are a couple of routes that I can take to work, and they are some of the few roads left where there are nice long stretches of B road that still have the national speed limit (60mph) posted.
They are the type of road that offers various challenges, enough to keep you on your toes and make you work at making progress.
This year, I have noticed that the general speed seems to be 40mph. The problem with that, on these types of road, is that all the traffic bunches up. When they bunch up, it is not possible to safely progress through the traffic, so I too end up doing 40mph.

It may sound childish, but I can not help thinking “it is not fair!”.
I love my commute, regardless of the time of year or the weather, but after a Winter of cold weather and damp salty roads, I really look forward to the sun and dry roads.
I make the effort to observe the highway code, leaving 2 second gaps, doing the speed limit, etc. Why the hell can’t the other people on the road.

I guess I’m gonna have to start a search on Google Maps for a new route, one that the “great unwashed” do not use.
