Race tracks are fun for a lap or two. Driving fast under proper
conditions does not cause accident. Differential of speeds will even at
speeds below the limit. If the speed limit is 45 and one idiot drives
at 30, he is a danger. As is the guy driving at 65. Go with the flow
for maximum safety.
The general rule here (UK), is that you can get nicked for doing 10% +
2mph over the limit. So on a 70 limit it would be 79mph. 30 would be 35 etc.
So a fair amount of leeway. I don't know if it's the same in the US...?
I've never known any police force use that (and I know quite a few of them). They book you for 10mph over. If it's a built up area, they may occasionally caution people approaching it, but without giving them a ticket. But the real limit is 30mph over, that's when they give you a driving ban, everything else is just a warning.

There is no any general rule in the US. Some places (South Carolina) is
one that I know of that have the 'speed traps' that will give you a
ticket for even 2 miles over the speed limit. That is just a cash cow
for the officers and towns. I don't know about now, but at one time you
just paid the officer the fine. I bet most of that went into his
pocket. Especially for the ones from out of state.
Usually anything under 10 mph over the limit and you are safe. I was in
Charlestown SC one year and in heavy traffic. It was moving along about
15 mph over the limit. A police man got behind me and followed me about
half a mile. I started to slow down,but decided to just stay with the
traffic flow. He passed me as soon as there was a gap in the line of
I remember when I was a young boy riding with my parents and an uncle
driving. He got pulled over. He asked the cop why him as others were
passing him. The cop said because he could not catch the others. My
uncle started the car and drove off. While leaving he said 'you can't
catch me either', and left teh cop standing on the side of the road.
Sounds like a joke to me. Cops take catching fast cars as a game and
they live for a high speed chase. We equip them with pretty fast cars
so these chases can get deadly, usually for innocent 3d parties.

It will not take long on a google search to find stories about high
speed chases going wrong. A lot of them may not even make the news
because they are usually late at night and the cops have no reason to
make them news.

That is correct. Cars do not get bought or put on the road unless they are
pursuit rated. The cars get beat and yet really sustain. Suppose a call
comes in of hit/run w/ injuries. They flog the car for the time to get on
scene; say 10 minutes, car idles while on scene; say 20 minutes, cop spots
actor driving by scene-many do-gives chase; say 20 minutes, actor is caught
and transported to the pokey. Rinse and repeat. Ever notice on the cop shows
the actors vehicles are smoking from engine or brakes and the cop cars get
slammed into park and sit and idle?
