Only the police should have high powered engines. If civilians had them they could be used to outrun the police and flee the scene of crimes. If cars are restricted to only 60mph then the police can catch fleeing criminals more easily and we will all be more safe. C'mon car nuts were not banning cars just limiting the type of cars you can buy. You can be happy with your Corollas or Prius. Note: This was meant to be sarcasm illustrating the fallacies of statist logic.
