No, it only means legislators realized a 110 kph limit is ok, based on new evidence, examples or on a review of old data.
Only idiots never change their opinion.
As for respecting rules, I agree that some speed limits feel wrong, but it is not our place to decide to change them. It is of course our freedom to choose to break a rule, with all the consequences it might bring.

I don't think llary checks into this site anymore but my 2 cents is that we have no ability to change the speed limit in the first place. Short of complaining to the government about the low limit, it is their decision to set the limit.
In Canada, my form of protest is applying for a court date. This costs money and if enough people did it, would cost more money than it would bring in revenues, thus forcing the government to change the unnecessarily low limits. But in Taiwan I don't believe there is this option.
Radar detectors and GPS with camera locations allow us the freedom to break a rule without the consequences however
And getting caught in Taiwan is mostly just people not being observant. For example down south here, people make a right hand turn without stopping to look first, usually running right into the waiting police. If they had stopped and looked first and noticed the police, they would not have made the turn.
