    In the UK you get points on your licence for speeding. Too many points they ban you. Drunk driving is an instant ban.

    I thought he may have been talking about an outright driving ban for certain sections of the city :) Probably coming to a town near all of us soon. :D

    Oh we already have that - pedestrian areas etc. Lots of city centres closed off. Streets made narrower even though there are more cars - speed humps - so called traffic calming! Doesn't make me very calm GGGRRRRRR!!!

    Sounds awful-- we are fortunate in Texas to have wide streets and highways-- and a lot of vehicles and trucks-- but getting around is pretty much a breeze. But the freeways are becoming toll ways -- somebody has got to pay:D

    They decided to FORCE people to use pubic transport! So lots of buses with like 4 people in them - drives me nuts.
    More traffic than ever and they are making roads narrower - you get wide wide pavements(sidewalks) with no pedestrians anywhere.
    Speed cameras everywhere.
    Roadworks that take 38 weeks to complete even for something minor. They get fined if they go over time so they just say we need 38 weeks and nobody questions it. You couldn't make it up if you tried!!!

    Bob I lived in NYC for 1.5 years and I can say you guys in America have huge roads and lanes on motorways, our motorway lanes in the UK are your street size :p

    Yes but having said that our speeds are so much higher. You see US car chases and they say speeds of almost 100mph as if it is a huge thing. On the British motorways 90mph is often just keeping up with traffic - seriously you are doing 90mph and not passing anyone. Limit is 70 by the way.
