Have you notice how the general opinion is that people getting hit by cars somehow deserved it? My best friend was hit by a text-and-drive kindof woman. He was an athlete and now he can’t walk more than a few hundred meters.

    GPS isn’t quite accurate/reliable enough. I know there are issues with shared scooters/bikes that are speed limited by GPS (I specifically heard this complaint about Neuron’s scooters and bikes in Waterloo, Ontario).

    I’d much prefer we design the roads to limit speeds.

      You are right, especially on overpasses and parallel roads.

      Do speedbumps count as roads designed to limit speeds? Lol

        Yes, though they’re generally considered bad road design. I’d prefer continuous sidewalks (which are kind of speedbumps), bumpouts, reducing road width, chicanes, pavers on slow roads, etc.
