  1. You should have consulted the one’s treating vehicular accidents that happen everyday. You implement a universal speed limit law. When do not know what is really happening in our locality. Motorcylces running on a speed 40 kph is already deadly give priority to anti drunk driving instead of speed limit. 100% of accidents daily are caused by drunk drivers.
