"the 85th percentile speed is the pace adopted by reasonable people,according to each road environment. We assume that most drivers are prudent while trying to reach their destination as fast as possible.

Also called the "operating speed" this parameter can be seen as the maximal safe speed for travelling at a certain location. However, it should not be confused with the speed limits indicated by road signs"

The 85th percentile speed is a common traffic engineering measure. Accordingly, speed limits on Aberdeen could be increased marginally without impacting overall safety.
