True - theoretically.

In reality, traffic flow is much more important. The less difference there is in speeds between vehicles the safer it is.

I lived in the Chicago metro area and the limit was 55 in some sections of the tollway. Traffic was consistently doing 65 to 70, with some going a lot faster than that. If you drove 55, especially on a cycle, you'd be roadkill in no time.

Even though it's not politically correct, it's safer to be overtaking than be overtaken on a cycle (within moderation).
