    Um, you know that there is a set top speed in most production cars, right? And that there are programmers available to alter or disable it? It's just a function within the engine controller.

    He'll no.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    First of all no, and second they could be removed easily.

Win win no?
    There was a study I read in the Globe a few months ago those guys who rive really fast cars get in less accidents than those who go slower, also what stops people form removing them? What about race enthusiasts who race their cars on tracks? You live near Germany where that is rather popular and is also home to the autobahn.

    Question: Do you think cars should have built-in electronic speed limit, i.e. the computer limits the speed of the car to what is legal to drive?

    No doubt this could save thousands of lives annually and will prevent criminals from escaping the police (if we presume police cars will not have that electronic speed limit).
    What do you think?
    NO! Because LE wouldn't have it, and criminals would by-pass it, and once again we would be inviting just more layers of control.
    Killing one person is murder, killing 100,000 is foreign policy

    We're not talking about governors here, we're talking about speed controllers - a totally different thing.

    Those who drive too slow and are too dense to make sound decisions on the road, i.e. gauge traffic appropriately, worry me almost as much as those who are driving aggressively and too fast. Learning how to maneuver around both is key, always expecting the unexpected.

    This is what most people get wrong. Speed doesn't kill, difference in speed does.

    Re: Should cars have built-in speed limit?

    Even though I know to expect it, I am always disheartened by the seemingly large number of individuals who have a desire to restrict the actions of complete strangers. Why do so many people fear freedom?
