I AM not sure what the "slow down, don't drown" campaign is actually asking drivers to do. Is the aim to get speeding drivers to obey the statutory speed limits, or is it asking all drivers to drive at under the speed limit?

If the latter, then the message that comes across is that the existing limits are too high, and need to be reduced.

As the campaign originates from Cambridgeshire County Council, then they, as the highway authority, are in a position to work to impose limits that are below the existing national speed limits, as they have done on the Forty Foot, with a 50mph restriction. I think the message need clarification.
