Here’s something new. It seems Australia is toying with the idea of Intelligent Speed Adaption. Under this new system cars would be equipped with an ISA which would warn drivers if they were exceeding the speed limit, and, if the driver took no action, would forcibly slow the car down to comply with the legal limit. The system is still in the development/testing phase and would have a on/off switch for those not ready for your car telling you how fast it should drive. You can read more here. I can foresee problems with trying to implement this technology, though I’m sure something like a parental lock might be a very popular selling point for Bobby or Sue’s first car.
