Simple solution to that - you have at least a 1/4 mile to get your car up to a speed higher than their 56mph = if you (or your vehicle can't) then choose an alternative route (my van does it quite comfortably).

I'm a great believer of a minimum speed limit for each lane - that would cure a lot of the inappropriate driving & congestion that I witness.


This job should never be complete - the day I think I've done it all, is the day I resign.
