and not behave in a way that could cause you to lose control.
Yeah but it's all just throwing shit at a wall and hoping it only sticks where you want it in the end, isn't it?
I mean, due to nothing but a freak mechanical failure (debead), I was thrown off a cliff at 55kph on a 70k road.
And if one of the 'Hoons' happened to take that same corner, and hung the tail end out, the situation would have been near literally impossible to take place.
OTHER events could have, for sure, but that whole "Driving with rules == safety" I'm now convinced is bullshit.
I mean, seriously, the amount of close calls and minor (not at fault) accidents I could have avoided if I'd just sped for 10 seconds to get away from an obvious problem driver are ridiculous.
No problem with speeding fines, pull me over, ask me if there was a valid safety reason to be getting away quickly, but cameras are emotionless and logic free, and the constant paranoia they cause are just dangerous.
My last minor speeding fine was with a Road-Train tailgating me while an obvious drunk driver is in the next lane.
Just stay there sport, you'll be fine, because this is safer than the 10 seconds of increased speed.
