I didn't think this would actually happen. Although I'm a steady driver, I can't say I like the idea.

The quote at the end is in the conversation for dumbest thing ever said.

I didn’t think they’d do it either, seems to be like an obvious and sensible thing to do though.

Lots of vehicles already on the road with speed limiters.
The minibus I occasionally drive for school is limited to 62mph. HGVs are limited to 56.

There are benefits beyond safety issues too. Traffic will flow so much better on Motorways and dual-carriageways and will handle lane reductions better because speeds are in a smalle range.

The legislation isn't for that sort of speed limiter.

It's more about things like getting cars to change speed if they spot a speed limit sign, but you can over ride it anyway (for example).

Car ownership and human driving has a limited shelf life imo.

Maybe a generation or two before both are historical quirks

HGVs are limited to 56.

They're supposed to be limited to 56, but I've had times where I've been doing 65 on a motorway and a HGV overtake me. I think a lot of drivers know how to deactivate them...

If they do it will show up on the tachograph.

That may well have been a truck running from Stranraer to Dover en route to the continent. Those guys are legendary. Tacho discs can get lost, or put in upside down, or just not put in...
