Thanks for possible duplicate links, seems to me that this has been answered already.

You mean recessional velocity?

@Chris So in observable universe the recessional velocity of a bit more than 3c may be possible to measure between 2 objects? Higher "speeds" are "possible", but they are not part of the observable universe and therefore go to the tooth fairy category, correct?

Even if I have a road where 2 cars are stationary, but the road itself is enlarging and therefore making cars get further from my standpoint, I would still contrive the speed between cars to be relative to me, not based on the odometer that shows 0 in a car.

I think the formula you gave only assumes observable speed between those 2 objects fired in opposite direction looked from object A to object B. But if there is an observer in the middle, he can conclude that the total length traveled is 2 times the speed of light, correct?

Wikipedia: "Recessional velocity is the rate at which an object is moving away" <- For me this counts as a speed, atleast in layman terms. I don't mind whether there have to be "observers" in the middle to get the calculation.
