Drivers may be forced to have their cars fitted with technology that keeps them within the speed limit under new road safety rules being considered by the EU.


New cars would have to feature systems capable of detecting limits through cameras or satellites and automatically applying the brakes.

This is a ridiculous idea. Tracking us with satellites isn't enough, now the want to control the BRAKES!! Just imagine you need to overtake and the brakes automatically apply! The next step will most likely to shut down the transmission and bring the car to a complete halt.

What do you think, will this make us safer, or what?

What's ridiculous is that there are so many people on the road for no good reason, who can barely drive safely, and who can't even manage their time well enough not to have to hurry, who can't not text and yack on the phone while they are driving, who can't observe speed limits and somehow think they are free to do whatever they please whether or not it puts anyone else in danger.

And this is why they come up with legislation like we are discussing here.

This is about people who can't understand common use areas and the responsibility they have to others using those same common areas. It's really no different than sharing an apartment and cleaning up after yourself, excepting regarding these isuues, people get killed.

I understand that everyone doesn't go out intending to get into an accident, but if one is not actively trying to avoid something, they are passively allowing it. Insurance companies and insurance laws treat people like idiots, like they are trying to go get into an accident. (see above)
