One hundred and ten miles per hour is a lot faster than the vast majority of people who have ever lived ever travelled. Even people who had important news, like the result of the battle of Marathon, used pretty well just to jog along.

Of course, it speeded up a bit with horses and trains and things, but by and large over the centuries we kept within the 110 mph limit. And then they invented the company car and the corporate meeting at the Anonymous Hotel on Red Riding Hood Roundabout half-way up the M293.

Now it has to be admitted that even today, even for someone in an executive car, 110mph is really rather too fast. In fact, there's no getting round it - and little chance of overtaking said-same executive car - 110mph is quite simply illegal, as well as being totally loony even for an executive in an executive car in November.
