EU Ruling - Mandatory Speed Limiters in the UK by 2022
The EU has provisionally agreed new rules that state speed limiters will become mandatory for all vehicles sold throughout Europe from 2022. Campaigners hope this will completely transform road safety by meaning that all vehicles in the EU would be fitted with a speed limiter device that restricts them from exceeding the speed limit.
Even though the UK is set to leave the EU on October 31st 2019, the VCA (UK’s Vehicle Certification Authority) has stated that it is highly likely that if this ruling goes through, the UK will also adopt these policies. Information from the European Transport Safety Council (ETSC) states that the limiters would reduce collisions by 30% and save around 25,000 lives within 15 years.
The technology behind this type of speed limiting is called ISA (Intelligent Speed Assistance). It utilises either GPS linked speed limit data or road speed sign recognition cameras or both. This data is then fed into a multi-speed limiter that automatically limits the top speed of the vehicle. There is no application of the vehicle braking system with ISA’s. The limiter just reduces the throttle output which in turn stops the acceleration of the vehicle past the indicated speed limit, unless it is overridden.
The Everglade Services Dynamic Speed Limiter (DSL) already has this functionality. Our tests show that using either Camera based or GPS based technology alone gives approximately 75-80% accuracy on UK roads. However, when these technologies are combined, the accuracy can increase to over 95%.
There have obviously been mixed responses to this ruling, so the ETSC has tried to make it more attractive by proposing an override function. Pressing hard on the accelerator would allow the indicated speed limit to be exceeded temporarily should circumstances dictate it. If the vehicle continues to exceed the speed limit for more than a few seconds, warnings would sound and be visually displayed. This would continue until the vehicle is operating below the speed limit again. This could mean that stricter rules could be imposed for the future. The ETSC is also recommending that all new cars would be fitted with a data logger to track the system.
