Excuse my expression, but: I think fast drive hot. When the speedometer needle is over Shoots at 200 km / h and the Endorphin release strengthens in the brain, a grin spreads on my face. Speed rush! This feeling can only be described emotionally. But. Rational it looks very different in me. Increased Accident risk for me and others. Needlessly higher Fuel consumption. More wear. A significantly increased and at some point decreasing concentration. I am clearly aware of this!
If you are allowed to drive faster, you will not reach your destination faster
But above all: I will Not essential more quickly to be at the destination just because I really accelerate and fight vehemently against the predicted arrival time of the navigation system. Nobody will give me a trophy because I overtake everyone on the autobahn. In short: I can do it no sensible argument find on public Streets to drive with over 200 things. It has nothing to do with freedom either. Does a Bugatti driver with a top speed of over 300 km / h enjoy more freedom than someone with a Ford Fiesta ST? No!
All new cars should be limited to 180 km / h
It is a pure one strength measurement. Who can go faster? An archaic fight that only finds space on our motorways and there meanwhile only on a few sections of the route. The more I think about it, the more Less Arguments can be found for high speed. in the opposite, there are not even one rational reason. I think it’s simply awesome. That is exactly why a built-in Speed limit at 180 km / h, as Volvo has and Renault is now planning, the right thing for me. But then please consequent. Regulates all new cars at 180 km / h. A uniform speed limit. My ego would cope better with that. Put an electronic chain on my emotions. Redefines top speed. Do not tempt me. But one request: leave a loophole. At least give me the Racetrack the opportunity to break the electronic barrier and let your emotions run free.
