I met with a client recently who now spends more time in ‘management’ than working on the tools of our trade - I can definitely relate to that! We both agreed that although times have changed, it's still important to keep up your technical skills so every now and then you need to get back on the tools.

Posted on: January 8, 2020 at 1:59 PM    

Reducing speed limits to improve road safety are often opposed by people who blame crashes on poor driving ability rather than speed. They claim that well-trained drivers are infallible and can handle high speeds safely. But anyone can make a mistake while driving and due to the laws of physics and human body vulnerability, mistakes at high speed can result in vehicle occupants and other road users being killed or seriously injured. The design and operating speeds of our roads needs to be more forgiving of the mistakes we make.
