Not before time Rudds.

I've always wondered why car manufacture's are allowed to produce cars that do 100 mph+

The national speed limit is 70,  speed kills..

It would also help the police by reducing the high speed car chases there often involved in.

The breathalyser is a great technical advancement and would save many many lives.

As I understand it the car won't start if it detects alcohol. Is that correct?

What's the speed limit at Donnington Park, Silverstone or Knockhill, how about the German autobahn?  

Oh and out comes the falocy that speed kills. Do you die everytime you get on a flight abroad, you're travelling FAR in excess of 100mph before you've even left the tarmac? 

The truth is that speed, as the DIRECT cause of road fatalities is one of the lowest at < 3% whereas other causes such as loss of control (whether under, over or at the speed limit), is the highest at 35% or due care and attention (failing to observe) at 26%.

What a bizarre argument.

Why is it? 

Padders made the arguement that cars shouldn't be able to do more than 100mph because the maximum speed limit is 70 but in every place I listed I can legally exceed 100mph if I choose to

Secondly he stated the speed limit is 70 and going faster kills, the minimum specified takeoff speed (V2) of a 737 is 150mph, so why don't people die, they're travelling more that 70mph.

Presumably because some people use them on racing tracks.

 

If you go to Germany you can legally do 100mph in it too on public roads.

And their not your average family car..

The simple fact is, the speed limit on British roads at the moment is 70mph.

If they have the technology to make people adhere to it, that can only be a good thing.

Saves lives, but would cost the treasury millions in no speeding fines.

People don't adhere to 30mph so why simply pick on the top speed. 

On my last speed awareness course in 2015 most of the13 attendees had been caught in a 20 or 30 zone exceeding the speed limit. 3 of us had been caught on the motorways.
