I agree too. However, the "law" enforcing the 70 limit is so lax, it will make virtually no difference to how people drive on motorways. All that will happen if 80 becomes law is that more people will think that driving at 90+ is fine. What I want to know is, does this increase in the national speed limit apply to ALL vehicles? Will we see lorries, cars pulling caravans etc doing 70+ legally? What about trunk roads. Will it now be legal to do 70, as opposed to 60?
