From next year, they will all be limited to 112MPH. This is very good new in my opinion, there is no need at all to go above 80-90 in my eyes. I do think the motorways need to be raised to 80MPH simply because cars are safer these days and all the cars go the same direction and protected by a central reservation so if a crash happens its usually superficial. Unless you his standing traffic, if that happens your fucked especially if its a lorry doing the ploughing.

Cars can be safer mate....but are 'young' drivers?

No they are not, they are shite! But most can't afford to drive powerful cars. Most crashes on the motorways are people not looking in their mirrors or blind spots.

Not disagreeing with you on that point mate but......with the introduction of this relatively new payment method...'PCP', more and more young drivers are buying high performance cars through this scheme.

Oh PCP is for idiots, basically for people to own a car they can't afford. I'd never use PCP, I'm old school and go for the Loan so the car is mine without a huge final payment.

112 mph, that's shite, I live near the M6 toll and like a little blast now and again. 112mph down there, and everything is passing you bar the lorries.

Cars are not dangerous, bad drivers are.

Yeah that is true, on my Speed Awareness Course I was told that 94% of all crashes was human error and 2% was from the car malfunctioning. 

But I the chances of surviving a crash goes down as speed increases. 

When the flow of traffic is 70-80 and a twat is doing over 100MPH then he/she/it/thing is asking for death to come knocking!!
