New idea - speed spy

[See previous]

It's one thing to have your car recording your speed as you drive down the road so that it can tattle on you if you get in an accident. It's another thing if the car is actually pushing the brake pedal for you...

Forget cameras - spy device will cut drivers' speed by satellite

Hmm, just wondering if you think I'm an idiot for saying this. I read the online chapter of your book "teenagers guide to the real world" I have done a slight adaptation of the table in the first chapter which applies to Leeds, UK. The cost per month (minus car, cable and and bits on clothes/random) turns out to be equivalent of $925.
 
Great.  Just when you're trying to accelerate to get out of a tight spot, the system would kill the power on you.  That can easily cause fatal accidents on many roads.

This scheme looks more like Big Brother in search of a problem than the reverse.  Sure, there are idiot drivers, but they aren't usually the fastest ones, they're the least attentive or most erratic.  Get your spy satellite system to detect that, and it might be worth something.

Placing the governer on a 5 or 10 second delay would solve this problem. But how often do you really need to accellerate to avoid a crash in the first place? It wouldn't be surprising if 100-1 accidents occur due to too much speed, not too little.

I've been wanting something like this for a long time. It's too much of a hassle to monitor speed limits in the city. It would be great if a warning light came on when the speed limit changes or is violated.

Of course it would be nice to be able to ignore or turn the device off if you're on a stretch of wide-open highway...
 
that really really sucks
