Ah no - I want to speed up in urban areas! The mess when I hit someone is that much more final - no ongoing support from the taxpayer needed when they are dead. You just have to look at the actuarial calculations - the price for a mere limb - arm leg - whatever - much greater than a death. So the message is? ignore those warning sign to tell you to slow down and reduce your speed to 50 km or even a pretty lax 60km per hour? No worries. Keep on speeding and if you do hit those bumpers designed to slow YOU boy racers down - well then you will be in the papers like the one that hit the DART gates the other day - lots of annoyed commuters will put your photo up on the dartboard and lob missiles in your general direction just as you lob your automobile wildly at obstacles - such as those dastardly footpaths with stupid pedestrians walking .- trying to cross the road?
