agree with all that speed itself is a small contributor to accidents, its the lane changing, rash driving, not driving according to lane requirements (fast in the left lane & slow in the right), racing & so on.
but even if all the drivers in india start behaving in the right manner the speed will kill people due to lack of safety measures in the vehicle.
if u notice in the west some of the accidents end up being a stockpile of metal even though the people survive cause of airbags, ABS, crumple zones etc.

160 kph is fine if the road supports it, in the consideration of civil engineers. I.e., road grade, curve, safety features such as curbs and shoulders.
This is, of course, not viable in the Indian context. Even on the vaunted Bombay-Pune expressway, it is said that there are some sudden curves, stops, and highway repair work.
