    The 100kmh is also because of the sound level of speeding traffic through a heavily built up area, CO2 levels and also very important particulates in the air which endanger the maximum levels that have been agreed upon in Europe.

    In large parts of the Netherlands you can drive 120khm (75mph) and on parts of our roadway system it is 130kmh (80,7mph). Only in and around major cities you will have to drive at a lower speed. In Belgium the maximum speed is also 120kmh.
    I distinctly remember 130 signs on the highway. I also remember crossing the border form Germany in the middle of nowhere and it got reduced form none to 100.

    Maximum speed for a moped in the Netherlands is around 30mph outside of cities, I have seen police shows in which the moped drove far in excess of 50 miles and have seen mopeds who would reach speeds of around 60mph.



    Here is video from a moped who drove 86kmh and then tried to escape the police. He was driving almost twice the legal limit for his vehicle. So yes, you can easily speed on a moped.

    I just checked it for Belgium and I live about 10 miles from Belgium and there the speed limit on the highway was and is 120. I regularly drove on Belgian highways.

    Mostly in the Netherlands you only have 100kmh near heavily built up areas, in most of the Netherlands you can drive 120 or 130.
