80mph U-turn

In another policy U-turn by the Government, the proposed 80mph motorway limit is ready to be scrapped

In a news story from the Daily Star, comments from the new Transport Secretary, Patrick McLoughlin, stressed that speed does kill and that safety was priority. McLoughlin expanded on this by saying that “most of the very serious accidents on our roads involve people disobeying the speed limits”.

The proposed motorway speed limit increase from 70mph to 80mph was supposed to put Britain back in the fast lane and boost the economy.
