Who knew about speed limiters?

In 2022 all new cars will be fitted with speed limiters.

The speed limiter – known as an Intelligent Speed Assistant system (ISA) – alerts drivers if they’re going too fast. If the driver doesn’t slow their speed the car will intervene.

The ISA uses either a video or GPS linked system to detect speed signs and alert drivers of the speed limit.

If the driver doesn’t reduce their speed, then the car reduces it for them.

The system doesn’t affect the car’s braking system though. After a series of alerts, if the driver doesn’t apply the brakes, the vehicle reduces power to the engine.

The car will then naturally slow down to the new speed limit.

Automatic detection of pedestrians and cyclists was also approved alongside the ISA.

For us petrol heads it's not the most ideal thing, but if there is one system on a vehicle that I would need for speed, it would be this.

It's a proper catch 22 for me as I really want to slow down on the road and I have made a massive amount of conscious effort over the last few years, but on the odd occasion, its rude not to hit the loud pedal, isn't it?

It's an EU regulation so may not happen here, either way it'll be bypassed by a simple £5 GPS blocker.

Is this so in the future police can give chase on bicycles given the weird obsession with bike lanes sprouting up everywhere…that very few want, certainly where they are being put

Nothing yo worry about (yet), they will be able to be switched off.

I'd be shocked if it is not applied here, we have stated alignment with most EU regulations when it comes to automotive

To a large degree I agree, its a personal choice whether to break the law in speeding or not, if you choose to break the law then be prepared to suffer any consequences.

Thank goodness there will be an on/off switch for it (initially)

A bit more about it here:-

This bit is quite interesting:-

You can override the system by pressing hard on the accelerator, but the system will reactivate every time the car is started. However, the speed limiter will send haptic, audio and visual warnings until you start driving within the speed limits.

Three guesses what an insurance company (and/or the Police) will make of it if you've ignored the warnings and had a collision?

And you can bet that it'll all be logged in an ECU somewhere, ready to download.
