Intelligent Speed Limiter Will Save Leadfoots A Lot Of Money

In addition to the host of safety technologies Ford has implemented over the years, the automaker is now making it their mission to save us from speeding tickets.

The truth about speeding is that a lot of times, drivers don’t mean to do it. Or at least, do it excessively. And that’s exactly what Stefan Kappes, active safety supervisor, Ford of Europe, says. “Drivers are not always conscious of speeding and sometimes only becoming aware they were going too fast when they receive a fine in the mail or are pulled over by law enforcement.”

14716990442_5b86a3a202_zEnter the Intelligent Speed Limiter. Using a camera, this new technology recognizes speed limit signs and “slows the vehicle as required,” according to a press release from Ford Europe. Then, the limiter will allow drivers to speed up only as the speed limit rises.

For some, this new tech may not yield a lot of benefit. For others, they’ll be able to afford a Caribbean cruise every year.
