NYC’s speed limiter trial leaves the EU in the dust - The Next Web

Quick Summary:

Late last week, the City of New York announced a revolutionary way to curb the problem of speeding using speed limiters.

It’s not only a first for the city, but a massive upgrade on efforts rolled out this year in Europe.  As part of a new six-month pilot program, 50 city fleet vehicles are fitted with active intelligent speed assistance (ISA), which restricts a vehicle’s maximum speed, preventing it from exceeding local speed limits.

In 2019, the EU passed legislation requiring all new vehicles to have an Intelligent Speed Assistance limiter.
