No you don't. The large majority of cars are marketed not on high performance but on other features such as safety, price, comfort.There’s going to be a lot of negotiation between the EU and the car manufacturers before it takes place, and will take a lot later than 2022 to introduce.
At a stroke you wipe out the raison d’etre for just about every car on the market. Ferrari will out of business at a stroke. Mercedes will find it hard to argue that their 180mph 6.3l AMG monsters are a good buy. Etc etc
Personally, I think it’s inevitable that limiters, and ultimately self driving vehicles, will be introduced, and I’m fully in favour of them, but there’s a lot of discussion to take place before it happens.
Yes!! And having read a few articles, I see that is what is being proposed. From the BBC pages:If the limiter has gps it should be very simple to make it road specific
It's not boy racers that are the issue. It's mainly 'business people' that are the problem, certainly in rush hour - the number of 'exec' saloons being driven badly by both men and women, is shocking, and that's at far less than 70 mph.But will it prevent boy-racers doing 60 in a 20mph zone?
A little research, to show where the problem is, would be helpful.
