It seems those who have found a new way to actually get somewhere in Britain have not gone unnoticed and the powers that be have decided to clamp down, presumably to get them back on the hyper-expensive trains.
The speed limit for boats on the Thames has reportedly been halved because of an increasing number of fast passenger craft.
It is understood that all vessels have been told by the Port of London Authority to keep to just 12 knots between Greenwich and Central London, down from 24 knots.
This has upset commuters exasperated with other ways to get to and from work.
The Port has apparently said the lower limit is essential as quicker boats are taking to the water.
Perhaps it is a result of people copying Jeremy Clarkson’s antics on a recent Top Gear episode where he used a speedboat to get across the Capital.
We will be interested to see how they will put the white markings in the water if they decide to line the Thames with speed cameras.
Perhaps planes will be told to stick to 30mph next.
