Raise the speed limit on Scotland's major A9 road to 50 mph

The A9 is classed as one of the most DANGEROUS roads in the north of Scotland,,

The law set by our government is one of archaic time,, when lorry's didn't abs and all the fancy things of today,,

Now 40mph is a dangerous speed to be sitting at and to expect lorry's grossing at 44 ton to pull in and out of lay-bys is out of this world the cost to a company on fuel and wear and tear and not to mention dangerous with the places some of these lay-by are,,
And if they don't pull in you have impatient motorist pulling dangerous moves on what the class as UK deadliest road,,

I'm calling on the department of transport to look at this law and up the speed limit to at least 50mph

safer more economical and would make the road alot more hassle free for everyone
