So the Isle of Man government is asking the general public for their opinion on how to make the Manx roads safer. As you can imagine the usual keyboard warriors have come out of the woodwork and posting all kinds of daft ideas. The classic overall speed limit and speed cameras ideas seem to be popular. I'm of the opinion that if there is a speed limit imposed (50 or 60) that it would result in a large drop in visitor numbers for the TT and MGP just when the government wants to grow the events. To this day I don't think they have a clue what the bike fans want. As a Manxman I'm justly proud that we are trusted to use common sense when riding/ driving on unrestricted public roads to control our speed accordingly. Hopefully its just an exercise and common sense will prevail, but I've a horrible feeling that they might do something daft and the island will end up being just another county of England just with a moat round it. Don't worry about this years TT but make sure to enjoy it just in case. link to the consultation below. https://iomgov.dialogue-app.com/the-islands-roads-your-safety-your-ideas P.
