And how many crashes will be attributed to ‘I put my foot down but the car wouldn’t go and I couldn’t avoid the oncoming vehicle’?

Probably not as many as are blamed on speed in excess of the limit.

True or not ;)
Your 'standard' is how you drive alone, not how you drive during a test.

It'll be interesting to see what happens to the new car market around that time. How many performance car enthusiasts are going to look for a quality used motor rather than a new one with a compulsory limiter?

Surely with Brexit, it won't apply here?

And I can just see the German car makers agreeing to it

Apparently...

Models sold in the UK are likely to have the same technology after the Vehicle Certification Agency said it would mirror EU rules post-Brexit

Can we stop calling it "intelligent" speed adaption FFS. It's blind compliance with a number on a stick. There's a complete lack of intelligence about it.

And I suspect its introduction will increase accidents as people pay even less attention to what's going on outside their windows. We've already got adverts condoning DWDCA while they advertise AEB :evil:
