Ford of Europe has announced a new technology that could help you avoid that next speeding ticket. Its new S-max car reads speed limit signs with a camera mounted on the windscreen. The car then adjusts its speed to stay within the confines of the speed limit and will slow down your car if you are driving too fast.
The new technology, known as Intelligent Speed Limiter, controls the amount of fuel delivered to the engine rather than pressing on the breaks to slow down the car. The technology may be turned on and off and pressing firmly on the gas will temporarily override the system.
