Are the limits set for safety for all road users? No, they are set by the speed at which drivers actually want to drive.

Unless you're planning on putting speed governors in all our cars, this is exactly as it should be. Driving is as much operated by instinct and muscle memory as it is by conscious thought. Putting up signs with numbers on them won't change the way people naturally drive on the road, they'll just do it illegally and occasionally get busted for it.

If you want to slow down traffic, you have to design roads for slow traffic. If the road feels fast, people will drive fast.
