Common Sense Prevails for Once . . .

Bet you don't see this sort of thing reported often: A speed limit going UP!

Yes, a local piece of road, a short section of A339 (previously A34) has been changed from 30 up to 40!

For once this actually reflects some of the road's traffic flow, which is either stop-start nose-to-tail commuters, or flowing freely at 40. Perhaps we're seeing slight return of influence from the '85th percentile' guidance (set the speed limit at what 85% of drivers are keeping under, so reflecting that drivers do have some sense), rather than the simplistic 'Speed Kills'.
