Cpt. Gomes & Hepkat seem to be the only two who aren't so quick to jump on the speed kills
bandwagon. Since when does driving at 100 mph / 160 kph mean that you're going to have an accident? Any of you heard about a thing called the Autobhan? From what I've gathered, people speed
on there all the time and the accident rate is no greater than roads with slower posted speed limits.
Why are some of you so quick to jump to conclusions? Do you know the exact circumstances surrounding the incident? Where you there???
Or, are your conclusions simply based on the fact that the dude was driving at 100mph? I suppose you think the results would have been different had he been driving at 60mph? Well, tell that to all those law abiding motorists who died while driving at the posted speed. I'm sure there are many law suits before the courts because it certainly wasn't their fault the accident happened
Clipper Hawaii; Not
everywhere in the U.S. is driving over 100mph an infraction "of the most serious nature". You should read up on the state of Montana, sometime.
To say that this chap brought this upon himself is akin to saying the USA brought that incident
upon themselves. Driving at 60mph could have resulted in the same outcome. The point is, STUFF HAPPENS.... and it's not necessarily the direct result of your actions!
