Speed

Speed
You're not going to like this.
In London, the inner city has a congestion charge applied to road traffic - if you enter the zone, cameras record your vehicle and if you haven't pre-paid, oh dear.  They know you're there.  We have a similar thing near my home on a toll road through a new tunnel.  I saw a review of a sports car with in-built GPS that recognizes when it's on a racetrack (some racetracks have track days for the public) and switches itself into race mode by electronically changing suspension settings, fuel injection etc.  Now I'm going to string some technology together...  In Europe, large passenger coaches have speed limiters - no matter what the driver does, the coach won't go faster than its maximum legal speed.  I told you you weren't going to like this.  So...  Say every vehicle had a speed limiter that recognised where the vehicle was...  Your speed would be limited to the legal maximum wherever you were.  No more speeding tickets.  Ever.  Emergency vehicles would be exempt of course, but then their drivers are properly trained aren't they?  Seriously, why mess about with speed cameras and radar traps - just eradicate speeding altogether, the technology's already there.  No more high speed car chases through urban areas.  Less road deaths.  Even here in NZ, seven people were killed on the roads just the other weekend.  Police said excessive speed was a factor.  They needn't have died then.  What do you think?

  1. A lot of us who are under constant pressure tend to eat too much and do
    not take good care of their bodies. ' The picture is just as worrying for youngsters - by 2010, it's predicted 22 per cent of girls and
    19 per cent of boys between the ages of two and 15 will be obese, with girls under 11 at particular risk.
    Stretching will help you prevent injuries and it will help you loosen up your muscles.

  2. It is considered to the start of the Arab Spring and would go a long way in forcing the
    politicians to effectively govern the country.
    I also have to wonder if the evening news shows are more interested in ratings or in reporting the real news.
    The reliable reviews on business and forecast about products and services.

  5. Don't put limits on what you eat as much as you do how much you are eating. So if you adopt them punctually, you will be surely able to gain your holistic health very soon. Yet, before you can get to this point, you first have to make a start.

  6. Exercise can help to avoid menopause weight gain and reduce other risks including osteoporosis, heart disease,
    and arthritis. If you weigh yourself everyday or every other day and see
    that you've gained weight, your motivation may go down and you'll be likely to give up.
    Get your heart rate up with a quick burst of fast movement.
