Speed demons

• For months I have been observing the 60kmh speed limit on the M1 north of Dublin Airport while every minute dozens of cars speed past me at 100kmh, hooting and hurling abuse at me for obeying the law.

What a wasted opportunity. If this stretch of road was monitored, thousands of euro per minute could be made in fines. Instead, a rule is made only to be abused by the majority, without any effort on the part of the authorities to see if it is being adhered to.
