    That's the point of a long lonely road, there is NOBODY. The only people your going to kill is yourself, and or the occasional cow. It would most likely literally be hours before your FUBAR circus was found. Speeding however fast is no reason to put anyone in jail. That's a waste of resources.

    Pro driving tip. Don't ever hit a cow or any other animal that size straight on. Its the equivalent of a four legged wall. There is NO give.

    Seize the car and auction it to make up for the resources lost. And if the car was not his, clean up crew on the freeway every weekend for 2 years.

    Re: What should be penalty for 20mph+ over limit speeding?

    If the car was going 90 I'd see it as a lot different than 170. 20+ is a pretty wide range, I don't think you can lump all 20+ speeders in the same group. I'm sure I've done 20+ before, but 100 over? Probably not...

    Assuming this highway was clear of all other vehicles the car would only be putting itself at risk. How could this car know the highway was clear of all other vehicles? Say the 170 mph car comes up on something that it needs to stop for. Takes a bit longer to stop from 170 mph than 70 mph. Less reaction time as well. I don't think you can say the car going 170 mph was only putting itself at risk. At least, there was the potential for other things to be present whether they were or not. Obviously it didn't have the reaction time to slow to 70 when it saw the cop.

    The Judge will deal the adjudication in court,,the Cop only reports the violation in Citation form. Penalties may change from jurisdiction to jurisdiction and state to state. I wrote thousands in 25 years,,,,,,never a 170,,,a few over a hundred but not many.
