Polishing the crystal ball

I'm anticipating the knee-jerk to the inevitable deaths on the roads this weekend.

It will go something along the lines of too many deaths blah, blah, blah, not listening to the message blah, blah, blah, need to get tougher blah, blah, blah.

It's a numbers game and I'm picking the numbers will be up as (surprise, surprise) there are MORE PEOPLE ON THE ROAD- especially if the weather is good. Also if the conditions are shite.

Who would have figured?

Unfortunately, it also follows that some deaths will be directly due to the sort of fuckwittery the cops bang on about. Recidivist drunks, pieces of junk vehicles and moron hoons and boy racers.

Which gives them the ammunition to keep persecuting the rest of us.

Do you think that anyone has given a thought to the liklihood that the fixation with speed limits will have drivers looking more at their speedometers than where they're actually going?
