"Speed-limiting devices should be fitted to cars on a voluntary basis to help save lives and cut carbon emissions, according to a new report. The government's transport advisers claim the technology would cut road accidents with injuries by 29%. The device automatically slows a car down to within the limit for the road on which it is being driven. But charity Safe Speed says the devices are dangerous because they encourage drivers to enter a "zombie mode". Ministers are planning to help councils draw up digital maps with details of the legal speed on every road.

What bug the hell out of me is that the "Motorists Forum", which is claimed to fully support such a move, contains no motorists, just representatives of worthy bodies. Stunningly bad idea.
