Association of British Drivers

Text Taken from the newsletter of "Steer" ( http://www.steer-tar.org.uk/ ) April 2000:

The ABD is the motoring equivalent of the
Countryside Alliance. Their 16,000 members
vigorously defend what they see as their right
to drive on the road network, without undue
restrictions.
They regard speed restrictions as a major
infringement of motorists? freedom. Individual
drivers, they say, should decide the speed limit
at which they travel, according to conditions.
Their web site (www.abd.org.uk) contains
pages of material on speed, including detailed
advice on how to object to local authority
speed limit orders. Letters from their members
to local papers complaining about speed
restrictions are easily identifiable from the
misinformation found on their web [site].
"

Good article researching the ABD's mis-use of statistics linking speeding and accidents: http://www.fonant.co.uk/wcc/cuttings/2001-03-19-A1.html
