Speed limit tech for cars, California bill wants it mandatory.

1 min read

TLDR: California Senator Scott Wiener has introduced two bills aimed at reducing road deaths by mandating speed limit technology in cars. Senate Bill 960 would require the state transportation agency to make physical improvements to better accommodate pedestrians, cyclists, the disabled, and transit users. Senate Bill 961 would require all new vehicles sold in California to be equipped with speed governors, devices that automatically limit the vehicle’s speed to 10 miles above the legal limit. Additionally, SB 961 would require side underride guards on trucks to reduce the risk of cars and bikes being pulled underneath the truck during a crash. The bills aim to address the increase in traffic fatalities in California, which have risen by 22% from 2019 to 2022, according to a recent report from TRIP, a national transportation research group.
