I’m still waiting for them to stop producing cars that will do in excess of 200kph. There is no reason for any domestic vehicle to be capable of speeds above 130kph.

Ah. The ever-expanding nanny-state, of course supported by those who oppose individual liberty and responsibility. Next will be automatic throttle controls/limits and automatic steering = no driving.

Did they not realize that the USA posted videos of hacked regular cars using regular computer controlled braking and they were able to stop a car in highway traffic to prove the point. All you have to have is a hacked Canbus or ODBII system and you are done. They can even activate your horn! ;)

So tell China and the US that their vehicles can't be sold in those countries until they comply with local safety regs, and let them get back to their trade war.

Not really workable within all cars, and could be potentially dangerous.
