    this could actually be dangerous. Of much greater use imho would be a device to jam cellphones so people would be forced to HANG UP AND DRIVE!
    and of course a subwoofer interrupt would also be nice.

    Exactly. Your in front and the limiter kicks in. The guy behind you has a malfunction and his car plows into yours and you can't do shit about it.

    Won't happen. Police departments require speeding-ticket funds to operate. Every rural station in America would shut down.

    Very funny Garrett. Now the question is if the same thing happens in the UK?

    or what about: You're about to stop at a crosswalk (full of pedestrians) and the thing malfunctions and your car DOESN'T slow down!

    It would still require every car to have GPS and a computerized engine-managment of some sort. I believe the UK has the same grandfather clause for vehicles that the US does (ie. you can drive your 1938 Hupmobile because it was legal in 1938). So I imagine the vast majority of vehicles would be unhampered by this new technology anyway.
