Speed limiters in UK will exercise your foot.

Speed limiters coming to all cars in the UK 2020. They work by using a Wikispeedia type database giving your car the max speed limit. They don’t limit you, rather you mash down harder on the gas and it overrides that.

It reminds me of the speedboat arcade games where you are forced to Goose the throttle over and over and over until your hands are sore.

I had an interesting conversation with some instagram-generation guys yesterday on the way to lunch. They use a Valentine Radar detector.

Its the best, but they say the lidar is focused on your license plate and never hits the Valentine, so essentially the police win every time. The only combatant is WAZE in their opinion.

The Waze shows cops. Do you remember when Congress “ASKED” the maker of Trapster to please-please drop his app. Times change…

Years ago I drove from Ft Lauderdale to Brooklyn with a bunch of guys. The rule was, go as fast as possible at all times, typically 80-100. Sure we got there a few hours earlier, but we ended up blowing up the rental car and spent four hours getting a replacement car…

Anyway, the UK needs to mandate smarter cruise controls like the speederaser from Wikispeedia.org, not mashing on the gas pedal. It works

Heres the link.
