BRAKE calling for more training to deal with rural roads:

There is also the need for better and more affordable public transport, so fewer young people see starting driving in their teens as a necessity."
Great news - after this additional training, BRAKE wants speed limits reviewed. So all those 40s and 50s will get reinstated to NSL because everyone's had proper training.
Otherwise why not just leave the speed limits as they are (or even better, redefine NSL=40).
