Ease congestion raise the speed limit

For sometime now I have pondered this rather relevant question.....

If you raised the speed limit on the motorway by 20%... Would not the majority of vehicles arrive 20% sooner at their destination, there by leaving the motorway 20% earlier... thus reducing congestion by 20%......

There will always be some silly S*d doing 50 in the middle or outside lane in the way. It will be an old woman of either sex with or without a trailer, caravan, Trilby or flat cap.

Damn. I have tried to resist this thread.
