Simple question. We have plenty of vehicles hitting sixty in under six seconds, plenty more with top speeds above 200 km/h (or 124 miles per hour), which has me wondering: is this too much?

I doubt that most commuters and drivers use cars to their full potential, but why do we allow vehicles to travel as fast as they do when there is no way that those performance figures can really be done legally? I mean, other than certain states that allow for vehicles to drive 135 km/h (85 mph), is there really much of a need for most cars to go faster than 150 km/h? Should there be restrictions put in place? Just in general, have we reached a point where cars are too fast for our own good?
