Thread Name: BS: speed restrictions in cars
Subject: RE: BS: speed restrictions in cars
I understand that the technology being considered by the Guvverment is based on satellite navigation, in other words, when a car enters a 30mph zone, an electrically operated governor immediately makes that the top speed, opening up commensurately on entering a 40,50,60 or 70mph. I'm told by car buffs that the car manufacturers will have to comply with this sort of legislation, probably within the next decade.
