Will Computers And Spreadsheets Really Improve Driving?

NEWS FROM THE CELTIC LEAGUE

I shouldn’t really make jokes they generally comeback to bite you.

Following yesterdays ‘offensive’ launched by the IOM Constabulary Road Traffic Unit I rather flippantly said:

“The text with the clip ‘it’s time to take a stand’ makes its sound as if they are about to tackle ISIS!”

Well it looks as if the ‘offensive’ against errant motorist is still on if this clip is anything to go by but strangely its not going to be fought with more patrols, speed traps or ‘stake-outs’ of notorious areas for speed and dangerous driving such as the mountain which some ‘wannabee top-gear participants’ think is their own personal road.

No it’s going to be fought with spreadsheets (link):

I think we all like safe roads for ourselves, our families (particularly during busy summer periods Gary – nudge!) but the thought that they will be made safer by someone indexing data on a spreadsheet kind of stretches credulity somewhat!
