Point blank


David Coles (NCE last week) requests a reasoned debate on an 80mph motorway speed limit. OK, here goes:


1, More noise.

2, More CO 2 emissions.

3, Current speeders will add 10mph and do 90.

4, More accidents.

5, More deaths and serious injuries.

6, Longer queues at pinch points and in heavy traffic.

For: I can't think of any.
