  1. While I can see the need to reduce carbon emissions, I am not sure reducing speed limits on motorways, is the right course of action.

    Yes, reducing speed to between 55 to 60 , can reduce , however with the volumes of traffic, will this not lead to bunching of traffic, thus, reducing the speed limits even more. This will then not reduce emissions, but could well increase them.

    This action should not be done in isolation, for why not have one whereby speed limits are increased, thereby increasing the traffic flow.

    However, the later will never be done, as the powers that be are already convinced that reducing speeds is the answer, whereas it should be not so.
