I went on to look for myself but thank you very much for taking the time and posting it here.
It is a horrible law and as long as I can, I will find ways to circumvent this. What happens if I overtake someone and the idiot decides to do a
little race? The kind of drivers doing 30 in a 50 zone and when you overtake them with 20% throttle you suddenly drive side-by-side doing 100, because
they can not stand to be overtaken.
First, let us get off all those people from the street, who have to be the "winner". It is far more dangerous behavior than someone driving fast where
she/he can. I am much more "afraid" of those people than someone who drives at the upper end of the speed limit. It is the same sort of people that
will swerve into the other lane in curves or generally, swerving into the lane when someone wants to overtake.
I stopped someone like this once. She had her son with her, maybe 10 or 12? I overtook her while she was doing 70ish in a 100 zone, complete straight,
no traffic. It is my right to overtake her and we ended up both doing around 140km/h. I was wondering why she does not show up in the mirror and saw
her in my dead spot working gears.
I floored it when I realized she is trying to race me / do not let me overtake. I brought her to a stop at the entrance to the town and told her what
she just did (I could sue her, she could loose her licence).
Her young son did know exactly that it was wrong.
These are the kind of situations we need to address first, before we screw with the speed limit.
