160kmh, it's not fast on an highway (i don't know the Indonesian highways though ). But in France, you can also drive untill 160 without problems with the radars.

This virus is quite dangerous
Ohh .. OK .. ..

oh yeah .. at the autobahn 160 kmh is nothing ... but the suspension of the taxi car almost gone .. even the taxi car engine run in high temp for normal MB ... more than 100 ...

The Indonesian highway is not good .. only has 2 lane .. u can reach 130 quite easy but above that quite difficult ... many trucks and buses .. some of them trying to overtake the other truck but not enough power .. so u can imagine it .. takes quite long time .. so many times I use the emergency lane to overtakes all of them ... I can reach 160 to 180 for 2 to 3 seconds than I have to brake ... .. I hate it .. .. but what can I do ...

You'll meet all the European members of this forum

I can imagine this kind of highways (Indonesian) because it's the same thing as in some eastern countries (it's changing though). I went in Roumania in 1995 and it's quite "funny" to drive there .... !

Oh god..............Even in New Zealand they didn't care if you were at 120 on a 100km/h road- they just gave you a fine- 150 got you arrested I think

ahhh .. in reality nobody drives 100 kmh on USA highway .. mostly they do like 70 mph and more ... I go to US regularly and I have cousin who lives in LA .. the husband always goes like 80 mph to 85 mph most of the time ... and sometimes 100 mph (160 kmh) with his S 420 or Lexus 470 ... but have to be careful ... always check surrounding .. hehhehehe .. ... above 100 mph u will go straight to jail if caught ... hahhahaa

I exagerate when I say 120kmh ! but in the USA, you really can't drive fast because there are cops everywhere and at 160 kmh on an american highway, you can get a big fine. In France or in Italy you can be upset for your wallet from 100 kmh, and no need to specify for Germany
And that's the same on all the American roads which are often much bigger than European ones but where people are far more slower.

me and my cousin's husband never been catch by the police but I got the information from him if the police catch you while u r speeding above 100 mph (160kmh), u will go straight to jail, then the police will make a mark on your driving licence and for sure you have to pay the fine too ... .. so don't drive above 100 mph (160 kmh) on the american highway .. ...

... I agree with you ... many patrol cars .. like I said .. u have to be careful ... but in LA highway u better match your speed with all other car surround u .. if all of them do 75 mph than u go with the same speed ... if you go less or faster the police might catch u .. and most of the time americans drive about 75 mph to 80 mph (120 kmh to 128 kmh) .. on some american highway there is a car pool lane .. so the car with more then 1 people inside can use this lane .. less crowded lane means faster ... .. good for about 85 mph .. .. I have information that at night there are some places (highway) you can drive fast with less risk ...

85mph : it's the speed limit in France and it's too slow, in Italy they adjusted it to 95mph (150 kmh). But under 160 kmh (100 mph), it's ok in France eitehr there are other cars on the highway or you're alone
