Well, I doubt you can justify 140 MPH but certainly when the 55/65 limits were established the cars were absolute garbage. The speed limits are set for the lowest common denominator. No doubt you have come across some downright scary drivers and unsafe vehicles doing 65.

The reality is that it's quite safe for a modern car and decent driver to exceed 65 despite what some agencies would lead you to believe.
