France is about to change the speed limit on country roads lowering it from 90km/h to 80km/h. The government's major argument is that this measure will make roads safer and prevent fatal accidents. The change will come into force on July 1st, 2018. 

The proposal, however, is not supported by the public. About 40 million motorists are against the measure with an argument that speed limit in Denmark was increased from 80km/h to 90km/h and statistics showed that accidents decreased by 13%.
