I just rediscovered, after perhaps more than a decade, the Alliance of British Drivers. I read a lot of their material about a decade ago – they had reams and reams of great information and unreported facts – but since then I’d more or less forgotten about them. For example, through them I learned that less than 1% of accidents have speed as the main cause, and less than 7% have speed as a contributory factor. And that speed cameras create accident blackspots. And that increasing speed limits to realistic levels causes average speed to drop. And on and on.
