New vehicles may have speed limitations

NBC is reporting that the National Transportation Safety Board is recommending that new vehicles have built-in speed limits to cut down on crashes and save lives. Will this be enough to slow down Virginia drivers who are determined to speed?

This morning a a Facebook friend posted that he slowed down to allow two older women to cross a parking lot at Towers Mall in Roanoke. He said the car behind him sped past him and as the driver was making faces at him he almost hit the women.

Reports of deadly accidents in the Commonwealth continue on a regular basis and speed is most often the factor. If the new vehicles have limits of how fast they can go this may not deter those who drive while inebriated, break lower speed limits, or run through lights and stop signs. It is a start however in addressing the issue of Virginia drivers who don't obey the rules of the road and should decrease accidents, injury, and death.
