Brake welcomes move to scrap 80mph plans

Posted in: Road Traffic Accidents 

Road safety charity Brake has strongly welcomed news reported in The Financial Times that Transport Secretary Patrick McLoughlin is resolved to cancel proposals for 80mph motorways, although an official announcement may not be made until later in the year.

However, the Department for Transport has said it will be going ahead with trials nonetheless, to which Brake is opposed.

Brake is part of the NO to 80 coalition, which opposes government proposals to increase speed limits to 80mph on motorways, arguing that it will result in more violent deaths and injuries on roads.

Instead Brake is urging the government to invest in more variable speed limits on motorways, with a top speed of 70mph, as this is a proven way to reduce crashes and casualties at the same time as reducing congestion.
