  1. Madeira needs to get speed cameras on their motor ways. The cost to emergency services must be high, unless the government got money to burn. It would reduce person power on call outs as well.

  2. Maybe they should turn the roads into a giant dodgems track and take away normal cars. Then anyone could drive to their heart’s content and not worry about bumping into others.
