It is an excellent security alert to motorists and will help drivers to feel their speed with their eyes.
Why not to make different colours to different authorised speeds therefore it will catch more the eye and by the same road security.
So by being on such colour we will be more involved to drive at some speed.
Looks natural and could become automatic to drivers.
A scheme of colours should be created whereas I believe Blue would be the lower speed and Black the higher speed.
Excellent idea RTA.

Quite a negative article. Let's look at the positives:
- If as the writer claims that no Bank does things better: let's accept this as the in-thing here. Why complain?

- Which industry provides you the level of service that you expect? Are you willing to pay the required price for the service?

- People will always complain. Most other industries also, majority would not recommend their present company to others. Human tendency is to complain & not be satisfied with what they are getting!
