Ignoring the Matrix


To those people who operate the matrix signs over motorways: you get more compliance for your signs if, when you tell us to go at 40mph because of queues ahead, there are, in fact, queues ahead. See, after the first couple of times it happens, we figure you're crying wolf and ignore you. Then, if there really is a queue ahead, we're going fast and have to slow down sharply.

You will also enhance your credibility if you don't tell us to slow down to 50mph because of impending queues when we are crawling along at 5mph in a queue, and have been for 3 miles.

Not that I just drove to Bristol and back today (400 miles round trip) or anything. Just as well I don't get jet lag...
