    Report: Canada testing device that alerts drivers whenever the exceed speed limits.

    December 4, 2005; Posted: 2:54 p.m. EST (1954 GMT)


    NEW YORK (CNNMoney.com) - Canadian auto regulators are testing a system that would enforce speed limits by making it harder to push down the car's gas pedal once the speed limit is passed, according to a newspaper report.

    The system being tested by Transport Canada, the Canadian equivalent of the U.S. Department of Transportation, uses a global positioning satellite device installed in the car to monitor the car's speed and position. If the car begins to significantly exceed the speed limit for the road on which it's travelling the system responds by making it harder to depress the gas pedal, according to a story posted on the Toronto Globe and Mail's Website.
    What happens when you are speeding to the hospital?

    I don't see anything like this happening for a very long time if it ever happens at all.
