Most drivers support raising highway speed limits: government survey

The Ontario government says a new survey shows drivers are supportive of increased highway speed limits.

Last September, the province launched a two-year pilot project that boosted the speed limit from 100 km/h to 110 km/h on three sections of the 400-series highways, including a stretch of the QEW between Hamilton and St. Catharines.

The government says 80 per cent of the more than 8,300 people who responded to the survey indicated they support the pilot project and another 82 per cent are in favour of higher speed limits on more sections of 400-series highways.

Almost 80 per cent of respondents to the government survey said they think the current speed limit is too low.
