Speed limiters in cars ‘could create insurance gap’

Insurance Post, 4 April 2019

Last week, the European Transport Safety Council has proposed to make speed limiters mandatory in all new vehicles from May 2022, to reduce road traffic accidents.

Article contains MASS comment on speed limiters:

Paul Nicholls, Chair of MASS said “Accidents don’t always occur due to speed, but due to impaired driving or carelessness. Whilst we fully support any ways to improve road safety and reduce the terrible toll of road traffic accidents, a speed limiter may also have some detrimental consequences which need to be carefully considered, such as encouraging people to drive at the maximum speed or preventing exiting from a dangerous situation.”
