At 30kph?.

At 30 in the city center my car (its an automatic) can't decide if it needs 2nd or 3rd gear and is a jerky mess


I don't know the first thing about cars, but could you not find a speed below 30 that your car will drive smoothly at? 30 is the limit, not a target.

If the rest of the population had an easy way of knowing where speed cameras were set up you can be damn sure they'd avail of it too. There are numerous iPhone apps for example that provide the same service. It's not something to get up on a high horse about.


I'm sure they would (and I'm sure they do). That doesn't make it any less of a disgrace that these taxi drivers are doing it. I'm not being prejudiced against taxi drivers, anyone who condones speeding in this manner is a dirtbag.

I'm not sure why you've quoted me seeing as your post does nothing to discredit what I said earlier.

Doing 'a bit' over 30kmph is NOT speeding

In a 30kph zone, yes it is.

I think the first people to admit the speed limit is a joke is the guards. Fair play to this guy.
Didn't they get rid of it in places because it was so slow?

trying to drive smoothly at 30 is a nightmare, I can only assume whoever came up with that brilliant idea is not a motorist.

I can go over 30KMH on my bike, This camera was at the bottom of a hill. Try keeping a car at that speed, it causes mayhem around you with other motorists.

If someone is speeding they deserve to get caught, taxi driver or not. What right does this guy have to be tipping off bad drivers like this?


Isn't the speed limit there to get motorists to slow down, rather than just punish them for going over it?

I think the Garadai should get a load of these sigsn made up and just get plain clothes lads to hold them up all over the city.

Job done

Its a ridiculous limit. If the limit was 10kmph would you say the same?
