    Speed Control devices should be installed in cars

    According to the Times Online campaigners have been saying that speed control devices should be installed in cars to force drivers to keep to the speed limit. The Commission for Integrated Transport (CfiT) said that 29% of injuries on the road could be prevented by intelligent speed adaption (ISA).The system would automatically slow the car down if the driver went over the speed limit on the road. The system would be voluntary, not compulsory for drivers. The report also looked at the impact of emissions, fuel consumption, noise and road network efficiency and concluded that adherence to the speed limit could also lead to a 6% reduction in CO2 emissions as well as reduce accidents.However, the opponents of the report have said that installing the ISA system could lead drivers to become lazy and pay less attention on the road leading to even further accidents. Claire Armstrong from the road safety charity Safe Speed has told the BBC that the device would be 'highly dangerous' as drivers reactions would fall once 'You've taken the responsibility away from the driver.'Do you think the Intelligent Speed Adpation device is a good idea? Will it turn us into zombie drivers and cause an increase in accidents? Send us your thoughts.
