The only solution is to educate drivers, install realistic speed limits, reduce road hazards, improve visibility, improve road surfaces and signage.
The current policy of building speed humps, urban assault courses and restricted roads will at best damage cars, cause more noise and pollution, delay journeys, cause frustration and put more 4x4 vehicles on the road, as they seem the only vehicle able to withstand the abuse. All these do nothing to solve the problem, only transfer it to another location and compound it.
