The European Union based in Brussels is considering regulations that would put speed limiting systems in vehicles to prevent them from exceeding 70 miles per hour.

The European Union based in Brussels is considering regulations that would put speed limiting systems in vehicles to prevent them from exceeding 70 miles per hour.

This is a controversial decision that the EU is promoting as a safety measure for drivers in Europe, but the Transport Secretary is opposed to the idea, saying that it infringes on drivers’ freedom.

The proposed Intelligent Speed Adaptation system would require older cars to have the speed limiter devices installed.

The device would coordinate the vehicle’s movement using cameras and satellites to keep their maximum speed in accordance with local speed limits.

There are concerns about the potential dangers of an automatic driving control system.

The Automobile Association in the UK is quoted as saying: “It could take away people's ability to get themselves out of trouble with a quick burst of speed, such as in overtaking situations where the capacity to accelerate can avoid a head-on collision.”

Another argument against the speed limiters is that the rate of fatal automobile accidents in Britain is relatively low.

What do you think about the idea to have automatic speed limiters in cars to stop people from exceeding 70 miles per hour?
