Drivers may soon need speed limiters on their cars to keep them within road limits.

It is just one of the many road safety rules currently being considered by the European Union (EU). New cars would have to feature systems capable of detecting limits through cameras or satellites.

The Intelligent Speed Authority technology has been earmarked by the Mobility and Transport Department.

A representative from the European Commission said: “It is part of the Commission's job – because it has been mandated to do so by member states, including the UK – to look at, promote research into and consult stakeholders about new road-safety technology which might ultimately save lives.”

The spokesperson announced that a document will be published in autumn, summarising the results of a consultation on speed-limiting technology.

As we approach the end of summer, road users will need to be more wary of conditions, as snow and heavy rain can easily put motorists in danger. ADNFCR-2754-ID-801632857-ADNFCR
