2018 Q4 with Fiamenghi Ti exhaust, Race Mod, and Tecnico wheels.
Some more notes about speed limits:Yes. I agree totally with you. I always drive within the limits in populated areas.I allow my self just 20 above limits , sometimes, in non populated areas, which are the most roads here.If they catch me, I pay my tickets. I was talking about our limit on the highway- autobahn, although it is not autobahn at all and the asphalt is not so good usually, but the limit is 140km/h and the coppers will not stop or photo you if you drive with 150km/h. I don't think driving with that speed is dangerous, unless you car is not up to this or your skills. The perception of speed, reactions and movement is not the same among the drivers. Just driving the vehicle does not make you good driver. This comes with training and experience.Most driving schools, never train you for extreme situations or higher speed reactions. I think , this is essential for car safety.
If I was going to drive, all the time with no more than 90km/h , why the hell did I get this car, exactly ??? Do you have answer to this ?
Why don't we get just the Prius, or even better , traveling with the bus or train......?
In California some highways are 90kph because driveways that branch off of the road are constructed for merging with traffic at a maximum of 90kph. This might not be obvious to the person speeding through the area.
Traffic lights are timed based on vehicles being operated at or below the speed limit.
Smog producing and CO2 emissions increase with speeds above 90kph. This can be an issue in certain smog prone areas and explains why California roads that are adequate for 112kph often have 105kph limits.
Higher vehicle speeds put more strain on the pavement and road bed. Roads that were constructed 100 years ago often cannot cope with higher speed traffic and tearing up the road to re-enforce the roadbed (usually a thick layer of gravel underneath the pavement) is typically not practical. In fact I would not be surprised if the stated poor condition of Bulgarian roads is a consequence of the 140kph speed limit.
Large vehicles have problems with high speeds, and mixing low speed large vehicles with higher speed traffic creates hazards for all. At least in the USA, the highest speed rating available for commercial truck tires is 75MPH (120kph). Many truck actually have 65 or 70MPH speed rated tires.
