Have you ever tried that?
A local councilor would never be seen to be in favour of an increase in a speed limit no matter how much sense it made.
They'd get flak from all the ould biddies in the area, Gay Byrne would have to get his say in by condemning the councilor and the RSA would create a public outcry......the poor councilor that tried to do a sensible thing would be out of a job.
Just look at Slane as soon as someone mentioned a 30km/h speed limit every politician in the area jumped on the band wagon to get there names mentioned in the papers and it was implemented in record time despite it being one of the most ridiculous speed limits I've ever come across.
