At the end of last week, the city New York announced a revolutionary way to curb the problem of speeding with the help of speed limiters. Not only is it a first for the city, but also a huge upgrade from the efforts rolled out in Europe this year.

As part of a new six-month pilot program, 50 urban fleet vehicles are equipped with Active Intelligent Speed ​​Assistance (ISA), which limits a vehicle’s maximum speed and prevents it from exceeding local speed limits.

If successful, the City of New York will expand the initiative to its entire fleet of 30,000 vehicles, including fire trucks, police vehicles, street cleaning trucks, paving stones and passenger cars, across 60 agencies.
