The EU just mandated all cars to have intelligent speed control... Meaning you cannot break the speed limit anymore.
I kinda get this, but its just so....big brother. First Alexa, your Tv and now your ride.....all spying on ya.

This WILL end up with Brussels sending out automated speeding tickets.

Did you peeps know all new cars have data loggers? That right and in an accident they belong to the insurance company.

Anyway....i will stick to my 88 Thunderbird so I will be blasting on by you law abiding fools. Bwahahaha

Surely not the BMW luxury sports models, that's what they were built for...speed.



Its top speed is electronically limited to 250 km/h (155 mph) and is expected to go from 0 to 100 km/h (0 to 60 mph) in 4.6 seconds

Except one cannot thump on a 100k M3. That will now go from 0 to top end in 4.3 seconds.

0 to 60 kph in 4.3 seconds!


pfft!

I do that now (in my living room) when I have to use the bathroom!

Well, I will keep the old 89 F250 around then.
But it sure won't be to speed by anyone.
I'm lucky if I can get her to not shake at 80.

It's bad enough that they make everything so expensive to fix on the new cars. I hate all the extra BS they are putting in them.
Glad I'm not wired to have the latest and shiniest car. My father in law's truck is like sitting in a cockpit!

Thats no lie. My BP meds have a dieruetic(sp) so the beer goes straight through. Like a flash flood.

Luckily the UK still uses mph. At least til they crumble into full EU tentacles.
Metric system is for sissies.

That would be dangerous. Being able to accelerate (Even above the limit) is a safety feature. I don't see why cars (other than those that drive on autobahn or closed tracks) need to be able to go 155+ mph. However, being able to accelerate quickly sometimes above the speed limit is crucial in getting out of potential accidents or other situations.

Unless EVERY SINGLE CAR on the highway / road is limited and can't break rules, etc then I see some of these nannies as a liability and potentially causing accidents. AI is in no way intelligent enough right now to be able to discern all the potential issues with other drives and situations.

Do you have to ignite the afterburner to reach maximum velocity?

You are supposed to be able to turn it off. It just gets increasingly annoying. Someone will figure out how to hack it/disable it quickly I imagine.

My nav system knows the speed limit for each road and will flash a warning. I always drive with the flow of traffic regardless of speed limit. Speed limits on most highways are artificially low.

The highways around here typically have 55mph speed limit but you will get run off the road driving less than 70 most of the time. Once you get out of the city, don't even think about geting in the left lanes unless you are going to do 75-85mph even though speed limit may be 65-70.

Great news for motorcyclists.

When this comes through the pipeline, I might actually consider riding on the roads.

For sure, and while they are interested in making cars safer, they need to deal with all the blind spots too. I can't tell you how many times we were almost run off the road because car drivers didn't see us on our motorcycle.
