While the Committee understands the need for efficient transportation, it believes the consequences of reversing the reduced speed limits would have a negative impact on public safety. 

It reads: "Road injuries present a significant cost to the government, not only in terms of the financial burden of hospital stays and extensive rehabilitation but also in the emotional toll it takes on individuals and their families. By maintaining lower speed limits, we can help reduce the number of road injuries and alleviate the strain on our healthcare system and the Accident Compensation Corporation (ACC)."
