People in a stream of traffic who are all driving a bit above the legal limit is actually far less dangerous than having one 'righteous' po-faced driver amongst them who insists on strictly observing the posted speed and causing them to bunch up and overtake at risky places. In that case the posted speed is wrong and the real life speed is safer. That is the problem there and not your 'endemic' claim that drifting a few miles over an arbitrary limit is a big problem. It just takes a brave politician to recognise that and increase the limit to reflect the performance of modern cars and their brakes. Faced with howls of disapproval from people who have not properly thought through the problem they prefer to keep their heads under the parapet.
