Government Agency Calls For Even More Dystopian Controls For Your Car


These people are just constantly looking for more ways to control you and me.

WLTR recently reported on the government’s plan to put a ‘kill switch‘ in new consumer vehicles built after a certain date.

Now, Pete Buttigieg’s National Transportation Safety Board wants to put speed limiters in your vehicle. Read this announcement from the NTSB on how this technology would work:

Intelligent speed assistance technology, or ISA, uses a car’s GPS location compared with a database of posted speed limits and its onboard cameras to help ensure safe and legal speeds.

Passive ISA systems warn a driver when the vehicle exceeds the speed limit through visual, sound, or haptic alerts, and the driver is responsible for slowing the car.

Active systems include mechanisms that make it more difficult, but not impossible, to increase the speed of a vehicle above the posted speed limit and those that electronically limit the speed of the vehicle to fully prevent drivers from exceeding the speed limit.

I don’t know about you, but this technology raises huge red flags in my mind. This will allow the government to track, control, hack, and potentially even crash your automobile.

The American people had overwhelmingly negative responses to the proposal made by Pete Buttigieg’s NTSB:

The Federalist provided the reason for the NTSB’s recent recommendation, note how insanely weak this reasoning is:

The NTSB board issued the recommendations last week after a 2018 Dodge Challenger rammed into a minivan at 103 mph in North Las Vegas in January 2022. The driver, however, was high on cocaine and PCP.
