Just look at the recent clip of a car driving straight into a car on the freeway. Now this was at night and that is something that even better drivers could perhaps not see as well.

But in general do you think the average taiwanese driver is up to 150kph on the freeways?


Some cars are already driving with that speed (weaving left and right).
My guess is that it could be done with proper education and enforcement. I just do not know if there is demand for it and if it would really cut travel time as most of the highways are clogged reducing the average speed to well below the limit.
