Road speed control.

Since the beginning of the year, as well as the police radar checks, on Motorways a new system has started whereby your number plate is read at the beginning of a section and again when you leave and the time taken is recorded and the speed is worked out. I believe there is some leeway given but if you exceed the speed limit too much you will get an automatic fine.

Re: Road speed control.

They've had averaging speed cameras on many major routes in Turkey for some years.

Yes that system a while ago was in operation on the M11 in Essex. I have speed limiter on my car & always use it if I come across timed cameras.Cruise cntrl is no good really as if on downhill section it can go above cruise set speed .But speed limiter won't allow it .

Do you need to constantly adjust your speed limiter. In other words if you have set it for a 30mph zone do you have to reset it again for a 50mph zone ?

Yes, you have to re set it for whatever speed you want .Clever part about it is unlike cruise cntrl when you brake or change gear it does not cut out and if you accelerate it won't go above the set speed .If a emergency happens and you need to go faster ,you just stamp on the accelerator pedal ,and it cuts out the speed cntrl and you go faster.

Sounds fine if you are doing long distance driving. Where I live I go through three different speed zones within five miles.

Re: Road speed control.

Its easy to set .Just press the dash control when you reach the speed you want .I use it more than cruise.
Especially handy in speed camera areas.
Mind you cars these days get so many gadgets on them its no wonder people get distracted.

In Ireland a car is always referred to as 'she'. Is it any wonder that they crash so much?

Re: Road speed control.

On the subject of car sex. Was talking to a Romanian guy and he told me female drivers are rare in Romania. He reckons in his town of around 8000 there are about 4 female drivers. ??
