Safety is relevant. Just because the posted limit is 70mph in a specific area doesn't mean that 120mph is unsafe. No regard is given when posting speed limits as to weather you are driving a dump truck or a spots car.
My Porsches have all had 915s and topped out at ~140mph. I took them there often.
The safe speed envelope is ever increasing as auto technology advances. It is the stupidity envelope you gotta watch out for.
