Submission + - Australia tests vehicle speed limiting devices (abc.net.au) 1

nemesisrocks writes: "The New South Wales (Australia) Government is testing a device that will limit the speed of drivers because "excessive speed is one of the primary ways that people are killed while driving".

Located on the dashboard, it senses a driver's speed with the use of GPS. If the speed of a car goes over the posted legal limit, a warning sounds. If the driver ignores the warning, the device eventually cuts all power to the car because a cut-off switch has been installed between the accelerator and the engine."
