      Having done a driving job for over 35 yrs I agree the 70mph is out of date.
      Anyone else got thoughts on this ?

      I am mixed on this to be honest, I feel it's good for the drivers whom have been driving for many years and are very cautious however for the drivers just starting out I feel this may be a bad move to be honest especially the ones who see driving pretty fast as a way to have fun and forget the cautions.

      I think it's generally a good thing. Can only really re-hash what has been said. Since the speed limit was introduced there's been massive advances in technologies to reduce stopping distances.

      The thing about the drivers you mentioned Shortie is that they're going to drive fast regardless of what the speed limit is.
