Well first of all, it's not the US. We all drive that fast and even faster. My 60 year old mom goes 120 mph almost every day. Nothing too special about it. Things like that happen though once or twice a year but it's still safer than driving in California at least. The drivers here suck... and they only go 75 mph.
