    Thought there'd already be a thread about this but I can't find one, so apologies if I've missed it.

    So transport secretary Philip Hammond has announced that they're raising the speed limit on motorways to 80mph (probably from 2013).

    I can't see it making that much difference to be honest, as almost everyone seems to do either 60 or 90 anyway. But the current speed limit was set in 1965 and is way outdated. Cars are safer nowadays, for one thing.

    Wondered what you lot thought of it all.
