There are 2 issues, in reality, one the often-over-estimated ability of the driver, and secondly the road conditions
Traffic laws are written to deal with the average. Just because you think you are better dosent mean the guy beside or in front of you is.
Unless you have had special training,driving over the limit is a dumb thing to do specially where there is heavy traffic.. Even when traffic is light possession of a fast car is no guarantee of safety or expertise.
I can attest to this first hand as a former medical examiner (MD).
The Monday morning crop was not something I looked forward to.
So, use the right foot to get out of trouble, not to show off. Go to a driving school to understand how your car really performs. Learn your own limitations before you hurt someone else.
