Anyone who wishes they could drive faster on highways/motorways with artificially low speed limits should check out and 'like' these pages. The more of us that are informed or interested in more reasonable speed limits, the better. We should NOT buy in to the "speed kills" and "slower is safer" propaganda. In many places, the majority of accidents are not from excessive speed, but are in places of congestion with low speeds involved on regular roads, not highways and motorways. Driving fast and safe is very possible, just look at Germany. Highly recommend watching the video below.

Quite.

In all honest I don't trust the vast majority of people with higher speed limits. I know that the kind of mouth-breathing moron who trawls six screaming sprogs around in a Korean people-carrier is going to look at a motorway limit of, say, 90, and decide that it's perfectly safe to do 90 under any and all conditions. Including in congested traffic, in the freezing fog.

Well thats really the kind of person that shouldn't be trusted with a car and a license, never mind an increased speed limit....

 

However I did find the Canadian video to be quite interesting, and The Alliance of British Drivers is a "must read" if you are a UK motorist.

I know, I know, but access to cars is practically a right these days, rather than the privilege it should be.

 

The German system works well, but only because their actual driver training is so much better than that of the UK.
