Here are two headlines related to speed limits:
Well, lets add that higher speed limits are also apparently bad for the climate.
“The Dutch government put forward a new climate change package on Wednesday. It includes a controversial proposal to lower the day-time speed limit on motorways to just 100 km/h (62 mph) from the current 130 km/h (80 mph). At night, the limit will stay the same.”
If you believe the first headline quoted above – essentially, that speed kills – why on earth would you let motorists drive faster at night when visibility is less?
Politics above safety … that’s government for you.
