Reduce the speed limit on motorways

Currently the speed limit on all british motorways is 70 mph. Most drivers push that speed limit and risk road safety by travelling around 80 on average.

I propose to lower the speed limit on motorways to 60mph. The americans can function with a largely 50mph limit. I think we can too.

Why is this idea important?
