The new driving law means every new car will be fitted with a speed limiter from July

From July 2024, all new cars in the UK will have to have speed limiters installed, a move that will revolutionize driving habits. The law requires the implementation of Intelligent Speed ​​Assist (ISA) technology.

This technology restricts a car’s speed to the national limit of 70 mph. Motor Match, a UK-based firm, commented on the upcoming changes, noting that they will significantly alter driver behavior and road use, reports Stoke on Trent Live.




A spokesperson from Motor Match noted: “The new rules, due to come into effect in July, introduce ‘mandatory’ speed limiters, changing the way we drive on the roads.”

Under the new regulations, every vehicle on display in showrooms from July 2024 must be equipped with ISA. This technology will automatically ensure compliance with speed limits.

For example, the ISA will prevent vehicles from exceeding the national speed limit of 70 mph. The spokesman added: “It’s important to note that while speed limiters are already in place in many cars, the upcoming regulations will strengthen control,” as reported by Birmingham Live.

They further emphasized the importance of these updates for road safety, stating: “Showing support for the introduction of mandatory speed limits is essential in supporting safer roads.”

They also shared some stark numbers to drive home their point: “Last year, police records showed that speeding was a contributing factor in 20 percent of road deaths. In addition, traveling too fast or exceeding the speed limit contributed to 25 percent of the deaths.”

“Speed ​​limits are set for a reason and it is illegal to ignore them.”
