I hated it when my van was first restricted but now I love it; I can sit on the motorway with my foot flat to the floor (far more comfortable than your leg hovering over the pedal mile after mile...) safe in the knowledge that the Chopper-Squad won't be breathing down my neck if my concentration wavers
AND; even at 68mph, downhill with the wind behind it, top wack, I still
pass a good 75% (if not more!) of the other traffic!
It's a pity all
engines aren't governed by GPS regulated limiters, the roads would be much safer; and people might actually learn to drive better...
Well said that man.
I work for Sky, all are vans are restricted to 70 (well 73 ish!!) but we are now tracked through all speed limits, its quite enjoyable looking in my wing mirror at all the tossers getting frustrated in those villages where it drops from 50/60 down to 30....
Also as its an LCV (light commercial vehicle) we have to do 50 on a single carriage national speed limit, and 60 on dual cariageways. If only all van drivers knew the law!!!!!
Im pretty sure it will become the norm for all vehicles to be fitted with gps trackers when they are built, and insurance companies to use them to bump up the premiums for poor driving.
