The Association of British Drivers (ABD) believes that the speed limit on UK motorways could be increased without compromising the safety of road users.
According to the body, Britain needs to follow in the footsteps of Germany - a country which does not consider breaking the limit a major accident risk.
It may be that motorists regularly found to be driving too fast pick up fewer convictions if the ABD gets its wish - meaning car insurance companies become more generous when dishing out policies to them.
"The speed limit on UK motorways could be raised to at least 85mph without compromising safety or CO2 emissions," commented Nigel Humphries, spokesperson for the ABD.
Statistics released by the Department for Transport show that there were some 3,150 people killed in traffic collisions on roads in the UK over the course of 2006.
