If you Die in a Big smash you might as well do it in Style .

Take a Sports Merc and Floor it then you only have to do that Once.

They should put speed governors on Mercs...indeed perhaps many car sold in Thailand should have one with speed limited to 90 kph.

I think this old solution is probably more practical for drivers here.......
