Makes sense. Here in the UK (no longer part of the EU) the maximum speed limit anywhere is 70 mph (dual carriageways and motorways). Getting clocked at 100 mph or higher is a ban, so not worth it.
Best driving roads have a 60 mph limit.

By the time this comes into force, alot of people will be switching to EVs anyway, which have very low top speeds compared to Ice vehicles. Most of the "average" EVs top out at leas than 100. I do find this kind of frustrating because when I'm overtaking traffic, I'd rather get past as quick as possible because in my opinion, driving into oncoming traffic on the wrong side of the road is a higher risk than speeding.
Yeah, technically, at least here anyway, you aren't allowed to exceed the posted speed limit, even when passing. Yeah, like that's going to happen. I rarely drive anywhere that requires passing but in the past if/when I wanted to pass I did so as quickly as possible. Getting hit head on while in the wrong lane is not the kind of E ticket ride I want.
I very rarely speed, but occasionally I'll do a mini risk assessment, depending how busy the roads are and certain times of year, I like to safely enjoy the performance of my cars. I feel it's a waste for car makers to spend millions developing high performance cars if they can't be used properly now and again. People forget that performance cars are not only capable of driving faster, but can take bends far quicker and stop far quicker too. You're far less likely to break traction with a limited slip diff, and the brakes on my Peugeot are 3 inches bigger than the wheels on my first car.
