The name of the town is Speed, but the locals agreed to change the name to SpeedKills if they got more than 10,000 Likes on Facebook. Then one of the local farmers, Phil Down, said if they got an extra 10,000 Likes he’d change his name to Phil Slowdown.
It was a massive success, and the name changing ceremonies were held last Friday.
Critics citing the complexities of road trauma, call it an empty stunt,
but I say “Well done, Speed Kills"
