There is also the crazy idea that people who have proven themselves to be reckless drivers are still given the keys to fast cars ( so long as they havent been banned ) like a ferrari or a porsche. Surely they should be forced to drive a 700cc sewing machine ? Its not just about the top speed, too powerful acceleration gets a car to 50mph in a built up estate full of kids.
Why are we so laissez faire on car speed ?
Stopping Distances for Cars

Eh.. we dont manufacture ANY vehicles in this country
