I mean, imagine cable tying the Apprentice in a parts cage and jet washing him, you'd be in court the next week being sued by his parents😂

Imagine sneaking into the works bathroom and then throwing a dustin over the cubicle so it lands on someone taking a dump

Then imagine if that person then extracted his revenge by sneaking into the bathroom when the other person was having a shit and kicking the door off the hinges so it lands on his head :ph34r:

How’s that work then?

How do people all get closer together doing the same speed of 60 that they wouldn’t if all doing the same speed of 70?

Do you drive? Do you believe everyone does 70mph?  When your on a motorway with national speed limit in operation, people vary there speed, some do 50-60-70-80-90+mph how awful. When there is a fixed speed on the gantry 90% of people stick to that limit and the ones who generally go over that that do too, causing traffic to be worst and bunch up. They are thinking of getting rid of smart motorways already, as the differing speed limits is making them less safe.

I drive the occasional mile, yes,.

In my experience, I get through the areas with reduced speed and average speed cameras far easier than the bits where people are doing 80 or 90 and then stabbing their brakes because they think they’re better drivers than they really are.

It isnt the varying speed limits that are making them unsafe, its the lack of hard shoulder that makes them unsafe. Motorway deaths are up, people are dying because of the lack of hard shoulder

I think its the lack of hard shoulder that's making them dangerous,  not the differing speed limits.  The variable speed limit is known to ease congestion.

The talk of hard shoulders reminded me of a thing that happened to me last week on the autobahn, they don't have hard shoulders, they part like the red sea and the emergency services drive down the middle! 

When stuck in traffic everyone has to pull over to create a lane called a rettungsgasse, you get fined if you don't do it 

**** knows what you do if you break down though

I've said it on here before, but electric scooters makes me a lot more angry than it should. Maybe even irrationally angry. I'm literally being close to get run over every single day walking home from work. Every day. And then they have the audacity to ring their bell to make me move when I'm walking on a bloody pavement area. Please eat a dick.

They are everywhere in Oslo. I don't know the numbers, but I wouldn't be surprised if it's around 50 000 of them just in the inner core.

People throw them around and litter pavements, rivers, parks.

They are flooding the pavements and market places, so people who are handicapped, walking with a stroller, old and what not, can't get past it.

People are driving like **** idiots on areas ment for walking. For some reason people don't understand they should drive an electric vehicle on roads. And kids keep riding them, so I'm sure you see the problem here.

There's so many injuries these days the city politicians actually had to enforce regulations, which they didn't want to do as they are all green treehuggers.

Apparently you now can get fined if you ride 2 on one scooter, but the problem is that the police doesn't enforce it, so nobody gives a ****.

Another new rule is that you can't rent a scooter at night and they will limit all scooter rent in the inner city to 8000 units.

The only good new rule is that they are now sending the bill for collecting the scooters to the companies themselves, like a £ 150 per scooter I think.

Oh and at least they are starting to enforce areas of the city where the scooters can't ride above 6 km/h. Which is good, cause then what's the point. Can walk faster.

Problem with the average cameras is you then have 3 lanes where everyone is doing the same speed and then cars bunch up, and it becomes difficult to actually change lane and get over  .. not to mention there will always be a lorry driver doing 50 in the middle lane driving 1 cm off the bumper of the car in front trying to get them to increase to 54

German cars don't break down... I was told.

I have got one,  it's brilliant adn I only ride it on the road.

It's probably different in Holland as the normal bikes clog up the pavements / roads and anywhere else.  The normal bikes are the problem here.

I have not used my car for small journeys for 6 months also but I also live by the seaside so there are big spaces and bike lanes everywhere.

If there are no bike lanes there then that is the problem IMO,  not the e-bikes.

There are two points here:

For pedantry, I’m sticking with maths as I was taught it, they cannot possibly bunch up if they are doing the same speed.

For real life experience, traffic flows better when you haven’t got the usual problem of those german cars that can’t drive at a constant speed. You know the ones, they are accelerating or braking, they appear to have some sort of design fault somewhere in them.

This has more to do with the Speedometers of HGVs being more accurate than those of a car. HGVs have tachos so are accurate, Cars can legally be -10% (average about 5%) so your speedo says you are doing 50 but are probably doing 46-47. The HGVs being time limited, they tend to want to drive at the max speed they legally can, yes I know in reality this is seconds but that's human nature.

Average SPeed check zones usually mean inside lane for me, I couldn't give a shite if I'm driving at 45 in a 50, I prefer to live to tell the tale

There is a 6 lane motorway from Utrcecht to Amsterdam.

They spent billions on it.

Uses AVG speed cameras for 60 MPH.

Absolutley useless.  All the cars are in lanes 1 and 2.  It's so pathetic and its just for the money. 

Cant be saftey as there are 6 lanes FFS.

60 mph feels like crawling when there are 3 or 4 lanes unused.

They turn it off at night as well which seems odd.

If everyone who drove stuck to the 2 second rule for the gap there probalby wouldnt be any need for speed changes or things like that,  the chances of a crash are reduced considerably IMO.

It's such an easy rule that works at 40 mph and 140 mph but no one does it.
