Due to hit our streets in 2022.

So will it be no more overtaking? A move towards automation?

Itís bad enough sitting behind a lorry overtaking another over a mile on the motorway/dual carriageway but on a single carriageway A road, itíll be more difficult or impossible.

What next the telemetry data sent to insurance companies?

The system can be overridden by the driver.

To make speeding unpleasant.

Just a scare story - nothing to see here.

The system can be overridden by the driver.I suspect only for a short period. The insurance companies will be pushing that all speed data be kept of driving so that if you are speeding and have an accident they can walk away as you are breaking the law

The one thing that seems to have slipped under the radar is that it is a bit big brother, yes I know your phone gives the game away where you are, but this will be a system that is implemented by the government so they will be able to monitor exactly where you are.........isn’t that an invasion of civil liberties?

You can switch your phone off.

If you watched the Hunted programme where people tried to stay on the run then you will see that the government can pretty much track every vehicle if it's reasonably new. They were able to locate a car once they new it's registration. So big brother has been doing this for years already.

You can switch your car off too. Kind of defeats the purpose of having them though.
