I might as well stick one in for the attention of the pedestrian hating people that seem to inhabit this website. It all ties in. You're good at bashing the local Greens, but don't you think you've serious questions to answer to the wider public with your attitude that encourages bad motoring and deters the authorities from effective enforcement? From your attitude, you must be the same sort of people who:

1 get to know exactly where all the speed cameras are, and then speed up between them.

2 habitually drive within legal stopping distances, even if you're not quite tailgating (though you might do that as well).

3 sit around in pubs and restaurants bragging about your 'motoring exploits' in male bonding sessions (very sad if you do this - don't you have another hobby?)

So, ROLL ON 2015. Only another 1,700 people will definitely have died on the roads as a direct consequence of your bigotry. It is sad that all of the main political parties see people like you as an important client group, and don't want to upset you, except for the local Greens. I am a motorist myself, but would happily vote for the Greens all the way, more so if they could put 20mph zones on motorways, for no practical purpose other than to wind you up.

If you can be bothered to type this in and then scroll all the way down to 'Backbench Business', and then look at several pages afterwards, you will discover the distress that your attitude causes to the public at large. It's not recommended reading if you've just had your dinner. The contributions from some of the Tories are just gut wrenching, while the contributions from Ian Austin (who called for better enforcement), Julie Hilling (who notes the rebellious attitude of motoring culture that has been allowed to become mainstream, and is so prevalent in the attitudes of some of the contributors on this website), and James Duddridge (who called for a joined up approach to tackle the excesses of motoring culture) all strike a chord with me.

Even though the House of Commons has just had this debate, nothing is going to result from it, because the sensibilities of too many people like yourselves must not be upset.

Once again, ROLL ON 2015. Only another 1,700 deaths (or thereabouts) to go.
