(Daily Mail)   EU may require cars to read road signs and prevent drivers from exceeding speed limits. Suddenly spray painting a 3 into an 8 seems a lot more clever   (dailymail.co.uk) divider line 6

Flint Ironstag: Marcus Aurelius: Dinki: Once they perfect self driving cars this will be pretty standard.

We don't even have self-driving trains yet, so I wouldn't hold my breath.

Last time I was on a train in Vancouver I sat right at the front, and I sure as hell wasn't driving...

Recoil Therapy: Somacandra: FTFA: It then deploys one of three controls to slow drivers: 'advice', in which the motorist is simply notified of the speed limit by an alarm, giving them the opportunity to slow down

I think this part of it might be a good idea..

No because if a system like this can be abused by the .gov, eventually it will be abused by the .gov

While the switch may start out in the 'advice' position, within a few years it will  be mandated to be in the ... er.'mandatory' position.

All 'for the children' of course.....


It's a good idea to consider how the government could abuse this, and get the laws done right the first time around.

Why anyone would be against cars that refuses to let people drive drunk, massively abuse speed limits or drive into other vehicles is beyond me though. Sure, the usual clowns in the UK is against it because "big brother", but they're probably unable to qualify why exactly these measures are a bad idea (hopefully we'll see Scotland gain independence, and England leaving the EU. Imagine the bliss...).

I think it's terrible that the government is infringing upon my right to break the law. Truly this is fascism in its most advanced stages.

So the police in small towns would have to figure out a new way to shake down out of towners than a speed trap where it instantly drops from 55 to 35?  I wonder just how the police are going to spin this once they realize that they can no longer write speeding tickets if this goes through?

/ironically enough I was listening to Moving Pictures this morning & Red Barchetta was playing when I read this
//it would be kind of funny watching a place where the speed did drop 20mph instantly & watching all the cars slam on their brakes.  Can you sue the .gov for whiplash?
