Many years ago the City Council decided to post a 20 mph limit for streets in Oxford. But the Police say the signage is wrong and so refuse to enforce the 20 limit, instead enforcing a 30 limit. The result is that tourists drive at 21 and locals (on the rare occasions that traffic isn't jammed) drive at 35. :doh:

I was taught to drive when I was in the Police and have been on the advanced drivers course - I can not explain how much 'fun' (!) it is, driving at 70/80mph in an unmarked car, (no lights or sirens), whilst giving a running commentary, explaining what you can see front and rear and explaining what you are doing and why you are doing it. Here in Ireland, if not driving on a newish road, the limit is generally 80kph, (50mph), and on some of the roads, it is impossible to do anywhere near that speed, but it is surprising, when it is possible, how many drivers are going at 40kph. When I get somebody behind who is obviously in a hurry, not casting aspersions here, but it is usually a young male driver, I just let them pass when safe and think, "Go on, be a statistic". Probably a large percentage of fatal accidents in Ireland involve a single vehicle.
I used to be indecisive - now I'm not - I don't think.
