49% of cars exceeded 70mph speed limit on UK motorways.
Many motorists are still flouting the speed limits on the UK motorways. It would be interesting to know how many motorists speed in the rain on these roads too.
"On motorways in 2008, 49 per cent of cars exceeded the 70 mph speed limit. In addition, 15 per cent of cars were recorded as travelling at 80 mph or faster."
but speeding motorists were curtained by rush hour jams and bottlenecks on the motorways:
"...the percentage of cars travelling over 70 mph was at its lowest between 7 and 8 am and 5 and 6 pm. The drop in excessive speed at these times is likely to be due to an increase in traffic volumes during the peak periods".
