Dropped our caravan back in to storage yesterday. Making our way back to the exit barrier I sat behind a club mini tractor and trailer cursing at 9mph according to my cars speedo surprised

This post isn't about mini tractors; it's about speed limits on site so it's been moved here and the title has been amended to better reflect the topic of the thread.

In defence of all Wardens everywhere there is no Speedo on any of the Tractors owned by the club, so they can only go as fast as the car in front of them.

I see we are now blessed with at least one mod that can read the minds and intentions of contributors 😀.

I'm sitting here on a club site at the minute and I have yet to see one car going at walking pace. The rule is futile. If the 5mph signs around the site don't jog a drivers memory the no words from the warden will sink in either. The numerous posts over time on this subject only provides a repeated conversation. Nobody from HQ seems to care either. A few speed humps here and there do absolutely nothing.

In a MH the speed humps certainly slow me up Harry.  However, I don't think that anyone can argue that the accidents caused by speeding on sites are incredibly low or non existent; although I'm sure some will try.  I think more problems are caused by unsupervised kids.
