Speed limits and their effects

Since 1974 speed limits have been applied to Dutch motorways and sometimes they have been changed. The standard speed limits are 100 km/hr and 120 km/hr. Recently their is discussion about increasing these speed limits. The question is what the consequences are of this increase on traffic, safety and environment. And another question is what is a good speed limit? What are the criteria to set a speed limit?
