The news media makes it out like it's a big deal, but I have friends in Law Enforcement - they've told me (to the MAN) that they (and their coworkers) go over 100 *Every* Day. One of 'em said "Any excuse - hell, we'll make something up".
Most days they put it over 130, only occasionally to the "limit" of what their car will do (but they all know what it is!)
This is no secret to any squid. There you are loafing along at 85. On your 6 Waaay off in the distance you see those telltale headlights gaining on you fast. So you back off to somewhere closer to the speed limit. Whoooshhh, there goes john law blasting by you. No emergence, no overhead lights flashing, just driving really fast because they can.
Life's not fair! Especially to me, my Mrs. is the animal control officer working for our Sheriff's office. Her tools to keep me slow and safe are her co-workers and state trooper friends.
