Don't see why this wasn't put in place sooner tbh! Atleast you guys have a decent speed limit.
I live on an island between the UK and France known as 'Jersey'. Speed limit here is 40mph. Got caught doing 55 down our biggest/widest (and almost longest) road and was looking at court. Luckily I got off.
Thing is, that road is easily safe for 60mph, but no, SPEED KILLS, WE MUST DROP THE SPEED LIMIT! They are considering dropping it to 30mph. Roads here are in better condition than the UK's A roads for the most part, pot holes are very rare and filled in very swiftly when reported. Very smooth, straight and well made roads but the idiots sitting in chambers think speed kills.
Fact is, stupid drivers/riders kill. As the saying goes speed has never killed anyone, it's sudden deceleration that causes death.
