Road Safety: why impose speed limits? (sarcasm)

I often hear associations that advocate for a decrease of speeds on the roads in order to reduce the number of accidents and fatalities. I wonder what it will change! Sorry, I am a bit sarcastic saying this, but let's face it - drivers who cause accidents because of their conduct are not going to change because the road signs will tell them to drive slower! They will continue anyhow to have dangerous driving habits. Like in most things, rules are respected only by people who have common sense, and who behave responsibly and are respectful of others.

Dave, I am old enough to remember that when the speed limits were first restricted to 55mph, the fatalities dropped significantly. Then, after a while, drivers realized they could bump up their speed and probably not get caught, so slowly they started to speed and deaths slowly went up. Eventually we get a jackass government who throws their hands in the air-wtf, who cares if a few babies die in the car--and they up the speed limit. The people got what they wanted, screw their neighbor.

Limiting the power of vehicles would already have a significant impact on fatalities. What's the point of selling cars which can run faster than the maximum allowed speed?
