Higher speed limits?

Good to see there’s a move for more sensible speed limits. The cynic in me says it won’t happen because of the lose in speeding ticket revenue.

Not according to pro-speed campaigners, who are agitating for governments around the country and around the world to raise speed limits, particularly in rural areas and on stretches of high-quality highway.

They passionately argue boredom and frustration, rather than speed, are the main killers when people are travelling between isolated rural communities.

With car safety rapidly improving, they see remote parts of western NSW and Queensland, the Nullarbor, north-west Victoria and parts of Western Australia and South Australia as prime candidates for a substantially increased speed limit. Some advocate the total removal of speed limits on these types of roads as a way of reducing the road toll.
