Found this elsewhere Eric Pickles? The man's a genius! Logically extending his argument: 30mph speed limits - When no pedestrians are present, you can go as fast as you like. One-way streets - If there's nothing coming, feel free to drive the wrong way down it. No left/right turns - again if there's nothing coming, go for it! Red traffic light - ditto. Roundabouts - if there's nothing coming, why be forced by pointless traffic laws to drive around it clockwise if anti-clockwise gets you to where you want to be faster. I can't see what could possibly go wrong and they'd bust congestion like anything! This government has also proposed 80mph speed limits, new anti-middle lane hogging and undertaking laws, all of which have been successfully implemented. Off topic - time for my medicine please nurse. Whilst you're at it Nursey, better double Eric's dose. So what traffic laws would you change?
