A Device that Will Limit the Maximum Speed of Any Car ...
Youíll see articles like this every now and then in papers like the Toronto Star .
A well-meaning but slow-thinking member of parliament gets a bit of traction in the local press.
But we can stop and think.
Who are these young hoods who are blasting along city streets at 150 KM/hour?
They are not my little-old-widow friend who has run out of smokes and is desperate to get to the corner store.
They are not the harried businessman racing home with a full bladder.
They are young guys with spare time and cash, keen to get under-the-hood and fine-tune their vehicles.
For whom removing or adjusting such a device will be childís play once someone posts instructions on the internet.
Installing such a device will be expensive Ė development costs alone Ė and wonít be retro-fitted to cars.
On top of that the device is aimed at perhaps 0.001 percent (thatís 0.00001 as a fraction of the population) of vehicles on the road.
Itís a people problem, not a machine problem.
So the solution must be a people solution.
