For us....it is even simpler. The state governments can contract with Google. Google knows how fast your phone is going, where it is, and the speed limit for that section of road. Shutting off the phone, doesn't work....Google still knows where you are.

The only way to avoid it would be to travel without a phone. I don't think anybody would do that.

It would be just like the red light cameras. You get a ticket in the mail.
And Google will put out a competitive product for protection from that and take in even more $$$

Here's my question.

Drive length 400 miles

averaging 55mph, it takes approximately 7.25 hours

averaging 80mph, it takes 5 hours.

You get better gas mileage driving 55mph, but you are doing it for a longer period of time. Which consumes less gas?

I assume how the car is geared will play into the equation. Some of these 6 and 7 speed cars can operate close to the same RPM at 75mph as they can at 60mph.

Funny, when it comes to limiting something (protected by Constitution) the dems have big support, but speed governor and breathalyzer on all cars...

crickets!!
which railroad do you work for?

And which is more dangerous?

A new industry would pop up designing a way to go around the governor.

This world wide CO2 hype is disturbing.

It's %0.04 of the atmosphere. 400 parts per million (ppm)

Borderline dystopia.

They donít trust you. Track speed dictates my speed. Not a governor. A governor is easy to bypass.

Yes - I think slightly more, but still inconsequential.
