From session number 20  which took place on 20/04/2018

So how are we doing -  Oh my god, what a disappointing day, in fact certainly the worst day this year, we have to go back a long way to find a day as bad as this.  We are out there with large blue signs and Hi-vis jackets and still people do not see us.  If they cannot see us what are they looking at and how much attention to other road users are they giving.  Today we were out at Postbridge, the weather was very good with good visibility. We tracked 50 cars and 26 of these, more than half, were speeding. The highest speed recorded during our 90 minute session today was 73 mph. If this had been a police speed check that driver would be facing court and almost certainly a ban.  Even if you are not going to consider the danger to animals and other road users is it worth losing your licence.     

Fact, today eighteen of these were going over 50mph which is appalling. The speed limit is 40mph and it is obligatory, not a matter of choice we all have to obey the law.

Today's session makes upsetting reading, having done 120 sessions to be witness to such total disregard for the speed limit is very hard.  Almost makes me wonder if there is a point to what we are doing.
