As some of you may or may not be aware, recently the Government has decided to change the information on width and height restriction signs to Metric, but still include Imperial measurements as well. For example having the metric on top and imperial below on a height sign, like those fitted to low bridges etc. That has lead to me thinking that soon it would not be long before we are all forced to adopt Kilometres per hour as a speed measure and kilometres as a distance measure on all British road signs. I know Ireland has adopted them since 2005 as well as the Euro at whatever date they adopted that. But my question to you all, is Should we adopt this metric system of measurement to fall in line with all the other countries that use the kilometre as the designated speed and distance marker, or should we be stubborn Brits and cling to our traditional Mile etc? I know we are already a mixed up bunch with our mish mash of measurements, fuel in litres, yet consumption in gallons, pints of beer and milk etc. I am not convinced we should do this, personally I'm happy with the way the system of speed and distance work and I'm unwilling to accept the fully metric system. I',m old fashioned in that sense and don't want to change. I'd like to hear your thoughts on the matter.
