In my opinion, with connected cars, you can control speed limits in real time. When you are in a highway, your speed limits will be extended a certain safe amount and if you are in city limits that changes. A lot like DRS being used in F1 now. Traffic conditions, weather, etc can all be factors that will make these decisions. Data derived decision making is the future even for automobiles. Countries will have to start creating platforms which manufacturers will be a part of. This surely will happen in the near future. Whether that happens in India or not is anyone's guess.

It might seem to be a spoiler but in reality, unless you live in Germany, 200km/h+ is unrealistic. Again, apart from press cars, now many cars even see that speed!

I would prefer this than those silly speed warning alarms
