This debate could be interesting. I'm for raising the limits, but i would not have expected something as high as 150kph. For most peoples skills / vehicle maintenance, i'd say that's way too high ...

Wow, are you serious? That's a lot of pavement. I've never noticed exactly how thick the pavement is here, but I imagine it more around 6" or so???

I think it's fine to say that going with the flow will reduce accidents, but increasing the limit I think will allow people to stretch the bar higher. So, now you'll still have 15% of people driving too slow, but "too slow" is now 10 mph faster than it was before. The people that were driving 10mph over the speed limit will continue to do so, and the wreckless drivers, will be wreckless at a higher speed too.
I was amazed that in Canada there's trenches in the roads where the car tyres pass over. Never seen that in the UK. The other thing i've noticed is that Canada uses crap paint on the roads - just seems to become invisible in the rain. No cats eyes either

I've tried going the speed limit on #1 once - lasted for all of 5 minutes. Too crazy with EVERYONE passing.
