Rule #140: Speedometers

The maximum speed limit in Canada is 110Kph. In 'Merica, the highest speed limits are generally 75 mph (121 km/h) in western states and 70 mph (113 km/h) in eastern states. Why the US of A refuses to move out of the dark ages and join the rest of the world by adopting the metric system of weights and measures,.. I do not know. I guess they like to keep things confusing for everyone else.
Irregardless, the speedometer on my Toyota Matrix tops out at 200Kph or124.27Mph. Even though I doubt she could get to that speed, why would Toyota even install a speedometer that registers that high? Are they promoting speeding? I'm sure Toyota's developers are aware of Canadian speed limits. Especially since the Matrix is built in Canada.  
And what about the sports cars?

The speedometer on a new Corvette tops out at 320kph! 320! What the hell was Chevrolet thinking? Did they design the new vette' for space travel? It seems a trifle redundant to design a car that can travel at 3 times the speed limit.

Come to think of it, it must be a giant conspiracy. Imagine all the lost revenue that normally finds itself into the public coffers thanks to speedy cars. The Ontario government claims it's owed over a billion buckaroos due to unpaid traffic fines. So, I imagine all the fines that have been paid amount to a pretty penny. Therefore it's likely our government would encourage speedier cars as opposed to governing cars to the speed limit. Well the jig is up!

In the new world, all cars will be equipped with a governing option and once activated, all speeding tickets issued on major highways will be directed to the manufactures.
