Raise the limit

THERE should be an increase for the motorway speed to 80mph.

It’s been 70mph for 46 years and it’s out of date as cars are now safer. It would save journeys for everybody and save hundreds of millions of pounds in the economy as well.

Journeys would also be shorter and people would get from A to B sooner, which would be an advatage.

A small increase would do us all good.
