    this is a no brainer. Of course NOT. There are times when you may have to go faster than the speed limit for legitimate purposes. what we really need to get rid of in this country are the nanny state control freaks who want more and more laws and controls on people. It is already illegal to speed in most cases. That's enough
    How about school zones at 12 midnight or in the summer.

    Why would we want a car to slow down to 20 at midnight in a school zone?

    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?
    I'm not a fan.

Win win no?
    Isn't this what happened in the communists countries?

    The cars couldn't go over 30 or 40 MPH. Did that make the population happy?

    I think it would be far more useful for cars to have a black box, which could be accessed only via search warrant or court order. That way, you can be held responsible if your driving causes an accident.
    I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    Since you're more likely to be killed if struck while riding a motorcycle, we just ban motorcycles altogether. Think of the children!

    It is the same thing.

    The governor shuts down the engine at a certain speed. I would guess a controller would do the same.

    Right, because the NSA always waits for a court order.

    That is true and I want the ability to pass those trucks.

    How does the car know what the speed limit is?

    The plot thickens.
