Talking with Scott Wiener about speed limiting

Bloomberg CityLab: Inside California’s Coming Fight Over Vehicle Speed Limiters

On Jan. 24, California State Senator Scott Wiener introduced a bill outlining a different approach. If California Senate Bill 961 passes, the state would be the first in the US to require technology known as Intelligent Speed Assist, which uses GPS location data to adjust a vehicle’s top speed to reflect a roadway’s posted speed limit. Wiener’s bill mandates that speed limiters be installed on all new cars sold statewide by 2027, with the devices set to 10 miles per hour above the speed limit. (Drivers would be able to temporarily override the system, and emergency vehicles would be exempt.)

I'm cynical enough to think that politicians would exploit 28172(b) and (c) to exempt themselves from any speed limiter in place, because "laws are for thee, not me."

They haven't figured out how to exempt themselves from DUIs yet...

We will not edit your comments. However, we may delete your comments, or cause them to be hidden behind another link, if we feel they detract from the conversation. Commercial plugs are fine, if they are relevant to the conversation, and if you don't try to pretend to be a consumer. Annoying endorsements will be deleted if you're lucky, if you're not a whole bunch of people smarter and more articulate than you will ridicule you, and we will leave such ridicule in place.
