Euro Statists wants MOAR control - this time on cars



quote:

All cars could be fitted with devices that stop them going over 70mph, under new EU road safety measures which aim to cut deaths from road accidents by a third.

quote:

Under the proposals new cars would be fitted with cameras that could read road speed limit signs and automatically apply the brakes when this is exceeded.

EU mulls putting speed limiters in vehicles

Well damn, I guess this is too much of a "meh" topic so I'll spice this thread up with the V&S technique.

A quick review of the advance of FedGov's regulation authority over the past 50 years reveals that there is absolutely nothing to prevent FedGov from mandating installation of this same legal regime here in the USA.

In short, now that we have allowed FedGov to ignore Constitutional limits on authority and function, there no longer are any such limitations.

This. And for anyone who thinks it won't happen here... it will be pitched as "to save the lives of our children."

I don't understand this. What if you have an emergency and need to get to a hospital (my wife going into labor comes to mind)? Sounds real safe.

Not only that. But what if the speed limit is 60. The car in front of you is going 55. In order to pass that car it will take about 30 seconds. Not safe.
