Forcing your foot to the metal in a BMW, Audi, Volkswagen or Mercedes-Benz will never take you faster than 155 miles per hour (250 kilometres per hour).
German car manufacturers have a “gentleman’s agreement” restricting their vehicles so politicians won’t introduce speed limits on the Autobahns, where you can currently drive as fast as you please.
Now a speed limit like this seems safe and sensible to me, but I wonder if you’re currently setting the bar on your mood too low?
Isn’t there some value in starting each day with the clear desire for it to be a little brighter than the one before?
Maybe we get what we expect?
