Do lower speed limits on motorways reduce fuel consumption and pollutant emissions?

Introducing lower speed limits on motorways is expected to cut both fuel consumption and pollutant emissions. The exact benefit depends on a number of factors, however, including both technological effects such as the fall in energy consumed when decreasing speed, and non-technological factors such as vehicle fleet composition, driving patterns, frequency of speeding, congestion and traffic diversion due to the speed limit.
