Ford’s New Car Can Obey Speed Limits Automatically

Automobiles have long had speed limiters built in to cap their top speed at well over 100 MPH, but they couldn’t prevent speed demons from exceeding road-specific speed limits. Ford may have addressed this problem with a new technology they implemented in the S-Max. It scans traffic signs and adjusts the throttle to help drivers stay at or under speed limits. It was revealed in Germany, but will be available worldwide.

A temporary override is possible by pressing the accelerator pedal firmly. Aron Smith from Local 12 said that appears to be a step towards driverless cars, which is true. This will likely be a very helpful benefit of driverless cars, as it is people that speed, not cars.
