ReadMoreThe news item at bottom left, concerning the pensioner who was prosecuted for speeding on the M5 is an interesting one. The headline would suggest she was the victim of a miscarriage of justice after Highways England admitted the 20mph limit was in force for longer than necessary. But that doesn't change the facts of the case. She drove through that section of road, where a fatal crash had recently occurred, at more than twice the posted 20mph speed limit. Too many drivers ignore the temporary limits and lane closed signs on motorways putting emergency services, road workers and the rest of us at risk.
