Yes, if there's open stretches of road with the occasional reasonable driver who knows what they're doing, then speeds of 100 mph are safe.
But in major metro areas like NJ and NY, even on highways traffic is often car to car, with only 10-15 feet between cars. And every other driver is an idiot. So in these situations, having a higher speed limit or letting people drive 100 is asking for more deaths.
