No. But my level of responsibility may result in my own death by execution...or, perhaps worse, the rest of my life incarcerated instead of enjoying the liberty that I so proudly speak of.
I do not object to you doing anything that could cause your own demise. For example, you won't hear a word from me if you drive without a seat belt. Some say that it increases expenses of the society on your treatment, but honestly it's peanuts. Seat belts are life-saving... but a free man should be able to not use them if he wants so, and nobody else is in danger.
That said: Have you ever driven on a road where you are going 2 or 3 times faster than any normal traffic?
Never. I'd hate doing that even if it were legal. (I can imagine that you could do it on a road that has limit of 60 mph but the traffic consists exclusively of Amish buggies.) Or you could do that in Germany. The problem for me would be *at least* that I'd have to pass every single vehicle on the road. (If there are none, then you cannot say that you are 3x faster than them.) I'm lazy; I don't want to pass anyone.
Drama? None. Special skills required by other drivers encountered? None: In the pavement-colored car I had at that time, chances were good that they never even saw me coming...before I "passed them like they were standing still."
It only means that they could at any time swerve into your path if they had a piece of debris in the lane. They didn't see you, and they didn't expect you to show up if 5 seconds before they looked in the mirror and saw just asphalt behind. It was incredibly dangerous.
In case of a collision at 100 mph you'd be dead, of course. And so would be the occupants of the car that you just exploded into fine dust, simply because you wanted to save 12 minutes of time.
But was that time really saved? I would listen to the radio, or music, or use a hands-free cell phone. I would look at the nature. I would think. I do all that on my road trips. I don't exceed the posted speed - there is no reason to do so. It may save me 30 minutes or 1 hour... but that time would be immediately wasted on reading Slashdot, for example... and I wouldn't be better or worse off if I do that or don't.
That actually connects with the question of speed. If you are flying by everyone else, you have to focus on your driving. There is no room for mistakes. You cannot afford time to relax. Perhaps you love to live your life in the lane #1, and you enjoy to be always stressed out. I don't. When I drive in the middle or right lane I have plenty of space to other vehicles, and the relative speed on freeways is nearly zero (everyone is on cruise control.) I can eat something, drink coffee, select a CD... all that without any danger whatsoever. I really relax on my road trips, and I like them that way. Time is immaterial.
