That's small difference to current limit in France(130km/h i think).

Yes but the cars in the 70's was very different.

Nowadays French cars are very safe, maybe safest cars in the world.
German Japanese and Italian the most frequent outside french ones are also very safe.

This graph is from the Israel Police website and shows the number of road deaths per year for the past 40 years:

I've no idea how to compare these figures with other countries, but I'd be very surprised if Israel has the highest rate of road deaths.
What can I say, good to hear

Here's a dumb ******* in a BMW M5 trying to flee from the police, he succeeds by passing the border into germany where, at that time, the dutch police didn't have any juristriction.
He seemed to forget that his license plate can be used to track him down and he eventually lost his car, drivers lincence and he had to pay 3000 euros

Spain has speed limits since the oil crisis in the '70s. Probably the same happened in the Netherlands.

I think so. But back then, there weren't even cars that could reach more than 120km/h. (except for the really expensive ones) Now even the smallest cars can reach that speed. So back then, speed limits weren't very necessary.

After the oil crises we had about 15 years a common speed limit of 100km/h. Since 1988 it's 120km/h, though there are still al lot of 100km/h stretches on urban (and some less urban) roads.

I think there should be a 130 km/h limit in all EU countries, so there cant be any confusing with drivers from different countries. There should be safety laws for those roads.

What is the guy on the bike saying? It seems like he failed to yield, unless there is a traffic light I'm not aware of.

I don't believe this could be real. This movie must have been editted. You'll never get that easy away on a motorbike on such accidents.
