From that link 70kmh, 1 year jail, = 43mphApologies, how can you be specific about the speed of 43mph ? Do you have measuring equipment ?
We had one of those speed display signs on our street for a while that's supposed to get people to slow down. It displayed speeds up to 40mph or so but displayed blank if faster.
That's correct - speed limits don't apply to cycles. Detail here if you're interested - https://www.slatergordon.co.uk/media-centre/blog/2015/06/can-cyclists-break-the-speed-limit-or-does-the-law-only-apply-to-motorists/Hold up.....are you saying speed limits don't apply to bikes ?
Think about what happens if a car and a bike traveling at the same speed hit a wall and the damage that will be caused. Bikes really aren't dangerous, cars are.
This is because Physics... Kinetic energy = mass x speed squared.
Also think about the relative risk - a person on a bike really doesn't want to hit a pedestrian. If they do they'll almost certainly come off the bike and they'll likely be hurt at least as much as the pedestrian, if not worse. Driver regularly hit pedestrians without even noticing.
This chart is kinetic energy of a car at 30mph vs a bike at 20mph but you get the idea...
