Road safety charity slams 80mph motorway limit

Brake has criticised the Government’s proposed 80mph speed limit on motorways as ‘selfish’ and ‘out of touch’

Brake added that the proposals would mean that drivers will have less time to react to incidents and that the aim of reducing carbon emissions would be lost as higher speeds mean more energy used. They further backed up the dangers of higher speed fatal accidents on motorways with statistics.
