Stop the reduction in speed limits? sign now

Why do all the bother into making more and more roads with reduced speed limits and so called average safety cameras?
Speed always appears to be the sole blame of road deaths and injuries 'only' because it may be the easiest and lazyest option of enforcement however 'speed' is not the prime cause of the majority of road deaths
Why not affix the goverment, the traffic police, local councils to actually focus on the general poor standards of driving on UK Roads these days
Such as harshen the penalty for anyone caught drink driving, no one should need to have even one drink and get behind the wheel, people who are on the phone, increase the penalty for that and by reducing the speed limits, it dosen't do any good.
Most of the persistant 'speed freaks' won't obey them anyway and it only causes more tailbacks, convoys, inadvertant tailgating, lapse of attention and forces more drivers into tempting risky overtakes often at the worse moments and there is no proof that 'exceeding the limit' is a direct cause of accidents, it is solely about driving at the appropriate speed for the prevailing road conditions and given set of circumstances at the time, making more and more 50mph limits along rural roads and 20mph limits along urban roads along with average camera enforcement will not solve it
what should be done is to give a tougher education to drivers and soon-to-be drivers (make compulsory school/college lessons too) and to other people 'of all ages and abilitys' and apply retests every few years or so throughout their driving career just to keep them safe and updated and deal with those who commit the 'direct' causes of accidents
Sticking to a circle written on a sign does not make you nessecaraly any safer, not that I'm saying breaking a limit or going any faster is always a safe option but we should be taught how to drive properly and like a human being, not in the manner of a zombie/computerised robotic alike character.
Please lets stop this madness once and for all so driving can be safe, but also fun, a pleasure and 'fairer' for everyone, those who are causing the real dangers 'intentionally' will be robustly dealt with tougher, and everyone can get on more and still get to our desitiation at a decent time but still in one piece
