Raise the speed limit by 10 mph, then make it stick

How is traffic safety improved by telling people that traveling 12 mph above the posted speed limit is acceptable?

I suggest Increasing most speed limits by 10 mph instead. That would stop the practice of slowing down otherwise safe traffic flows simply for the purpose of raising revenue.

Drivers obeying speed limits that are set too low cause accidents when other people are forced to change lanes trying to get around them.
