“It looks like the Germans are about to get a dose of the same. “Safety” hasn’t been warbled about yet – perhaps because Germany’s high-speed Autobahns are very safe. The overall accident rate is lower than that of the American Interstate System, probably because Germans are schooled and skilled to handle high-speed driving to a degree most Americans aren’t. And – being schooled and skilled to safely handle unrestricted speed driving, German drivers are almost axiomatically more skilled and safer drivers everywhere they drive.

So “safety” may not sell.”

Also kill switches coming to the US. “The new speed limit assist system "will become mandatory on new cars in 2022 uses a forward-facing camera mounted on the car and the vehicle's satellite navigation system to identify the speed limit and, if the car is exceeding it, to restrict the fuel flowing to the engine until the vehicle is at the limit speed," British automobile magazine Autocar said. “

You'd think after decades they would get the messaging and wording accurate. Also, after so much scrutiny of media about sloppy reporting and fake news....
"Speeding is the leading cause" of crash fatalities - is just wrong. To say something is a "cause" or "leading cause" of something, it needs to be mostly to blame and speeding (over the limit) is a primary contributing factor in a minor number of crashes in BC. It's also important to understand the difference between speeding "over the limit" and "speed related". The category of "speed related" covers a lot of offences, including excessive speed which can accompany intoxication and speeding too fast for conditions, which may not entail speeding at all (for instance driving at or under the speed limit on snow and ice). So, it is misleading to have a byline like this without making the distinction(s). We could go through this puff piece and rip it apart. Suffice to say, same as it ever was, there's money to be made on the roads, and police and ICBC will warn you so they can say they did just that before they reach into your wallets.
