Highways England have announced that roadwork speed limits are soon to be increased from 50mph to 60mph.

In tests using heart monitors, it was discovered that motorists driving at 60mph were more relaxed and felt better able to accelerate past large lorries in sections of roadworks - they were able to spend more time concentrating on driving rather than checking their speed and worrying about the average speed cameras.

News: Decline in sat-nav sales - John Lewis pull PNDs from shelves

pocketgpsworld.com
With sales of dedicated in-car sat-nav plummeting, high street retailer John Lewis has taken the decision to stop stocking them in-store.

Smartphone navigation has become the norm for most users and many more cars now have competent built-in navigation so it's perhaps not a surprise that sales of dedicated portable navigation devices such as those from TomTom and Garmin have been hard hit.

Once the must-have accessory, the rise of the smartphone with its vast array of free and paid for navigation applications, and the prevalence of factory fit systems means dedicated devices are no longer sought after.

So now they sit at the top of one list their manufacturers would not wish to be on, the list of items being "left behind" in John Lewis's 2017 annual retail report.
