Re: Associate cannot keep to the speed limit

My Clio has it to get through some emissions hoops. I have to turn it off each time I start the engine as it can't be permanently switched off.


Don't worry - Renault put such crappy batteries in their cars, that the stop/start won't work soon. Mine seldom cut in until I replaced the battery

Perhaps he should start by getting his officers to set an example. I never see marked cars sticking to 30/40/50 limits. It would be interesting for one of us to sit with him for an hour to see if he can drive for that period at the speed limit, but never exceed it.
