England drops mandatory speed limiter in new cars

From 6 July 2024, the so-called 'intelligent speed assistance', which alerts drivers that they are speeding, must be in all new cars within the EU. Here England stands outside and says no.

From 6 July 2024, all cars sold in the EU's 27 member states must be equipped with the mandatory speed limiter 'intelligent speed assistance' (ISA).

The system must already give a visual warning when the speed limit is exceeded by 1 km/h, and at 2 km/h over the limit the car must howl about it.

ISA is also designed to be able to pick up the speed of cars and increase the resistance in the accelerator pedal if the driver behind the wheel ignores the warnings. However, how the car brands implement the rules is up to them.

But in England, which opted out of the EU, people now say no to the speed limiter. After the announcement of the EU in 2020, the English have otherwise adhered closely to the union's legislation.

But with the speed limiter in new cars, the British government draws a significant line in the sand. You don't want to be here anymore.

This is written by the newspaper The Telegraph .

The EU itself expects that the new law to restrict motorists' freedom of movement will reduce the number of fatal accidents by 20 percent. ISA will also help motorists avoid speeding tickets, the EU defends itself with.

The EU has a goal that no one may die on the Union's roads by 2050 at the latest. But already before 2038, the EU expects that with a series of new bans aimed at motorists, 140,000 accidents with serious injuries and 25,000 fatal accidents will have been prevented.
