You seem to misunderstand the concept of the 'nanny state' - the nanny state forces you to look after yourself - stopping you killing other people is a prime function of any state. Much of this discussion seems to be contrasting people's 'amusing' comments about driving on dual-carriageways in rural backwaters with others' experiences on 4 or 6 lane motorways. Personally I find French motorways sensible with an 80mph limit in dry weather, but 70 in wet weather. I would favour a similar system here except that it would reportedly cost at leat £500 million






Absolutely no misunderstanding of what Nanny state means, usually making laws to penalise those who are sensible in favour of those who can't be bothered.
How hard can it be?

The difference is that in France the police don't bother much about stopping people for speeding.



They rely on speed cameras instead which bring in around 600 million Euro a year. 



It was broken when I got here

iam resticted to 56mph on motorways and cannot use the outside lane except when directed by HA or plod which affects me when i come across some numb nut cruising along in lane 2 in his 4x4 at 53/54 mph now i am at 56 mph do i undertake him cant over take as im banned from lane three so i have to sit just behind this idiot in lane one matching his speed which also efectivley turns the whole motorway in to a single carriegeway for vehicles moving faster . these are the type of people that the truck driving community are informed the police will be targeting not the peopl who are and i quote " making progress in the flow of traffic and not causing bunching of traffic .

hope this helps from anothers point of view

I've seen this numerous times, often with the "numb nut" doing 50mph or less. It not only leaves the lorry drivers having to match his speed but means that a queue of traffic also builds up in lane 2. This queue is all the unfortunate individuals who didn't get into the (now overloaded) lane 3 in time. They're now stuck driving at 50mph and have no chance of filtering into a lane travelling at 70mph, with absolutely no gaps between the cars because 80% of the traffic is in that one lane.
