    I think I may be keeping my 2018 Mustang for as long as I can!

    It’s not mandatory, nor is it clear that it ever will be. Car will have the tech that can be turned off. If it is mandatory, Clearly safety concerns at being restricted for speed as well. If you’re stuck behind a car at 55 in a 60, you’ll want to execute the pass as quickly as possible and it is Ok to exceed the speed limit to do so. Passing slower would be dangerous…..

    A driver may think that it is ok but it is illegal

    Assume that's a response to my post above. Have specifically asked a team of police motorcyclists that question and their advice is pass as quickly (and safely) as possible.

    One hope is that the Department for Transport said that it expects limiters "to give drivers feedback when the speed limit is exceeded rather than limiting the speed" . Hmmm... we'll see..  :012:

    "In news that has seemingly flown under the radar" wow, wonder why.....

    Some cars have Cruise control and HGV like speed limiters that you can turn on and adjust for yourself, eg: Turn on limiter, set to 75 on the motorway, pedal to the metal, stays 75. If this system retains that functionality but can automatically adjust this said limit on the fly, OK, fine. Otherwise they can take their limiters and shove it up their arse.

    There will be more steps that come in to be able to track your car/vehicle to see how many miles you do.

    The Gov wont get away with 70% tax on electricity like they do on petrol, so will need to get their money back somehow  in the electric world  :013:

    It's still illegal, and you will still get the speeding ticket.
