    Yes I dd as a young man. I thought I could conquor the world and speed was one of the elements. Now I thank God everyday for having taken care of a foolish young man.

    Although in Portugal the speed limit is 120km/h (75miles/hour), it is normal to drive over 85 in Highways (and we do not have rules like Autobahn).

    Many times we drive over the 85m/h just to get earlier to the destination and because everyone does that. It is more common to see male drivers alone in the car driving fast than others.

    I already did it, specially when I was younger and you feel you can do anything. Other reason was reaching the destination faster and I was going at a normal speed (85-90), since all other cars were also at that speed.

    Yes and I did it because I was young and stupid or in a hurry. I have a tendency to speed when on long drives too. I guess we feel like cutting time down is the best choice but if something bad happens, we are cutting time down permanently.
