Naturally - as a lover of liberty - the idea of having a satellite tracking device which controls the speed of my vehicle is about as welcome as a burglar shitting in my bed.
As usual, the government has set up 'independent' advisory bodies, full of stuffed shirts, who dutifully go about their business of kite-flying the control freaks' crazier ideas, to create the impression that ordinary people are banding together to call for such things. They are not independent of government, but the creatures of government. They represent not the public, but the cozy, inside world of the quangocratic state. The only motoring organisation I know of which represents my views is headed by Captain Gatso.
This report claims that in their tests,the users liked the devices, and believed it improved their driving, but (important but) who the fuck are these users? What kind of cunt would agree to take part in such a test?
The standard MO dictates that the devices would be voluntary - TO BEGIN WITH. Then they'd be compulsory, perhaps starting with beginner drivers, or perhaps the insurance companies would begin to demand them, and soon enough you'd have drivers who couldn't even imagine driving without the system in place, like those tossers who pass the driving test in an automatic finding themselves in a car with a manual gearbox.
