I am sure most of us car nuts enjoy going across the causeway for a spin. And usually, that spin is likely to be a brisk one. Bad news for those who actually do, because according to paultan.org, the government is mulling over the idea of installing speed limiting device in all vehicles.
The vehicles subjected to the 110km/h speed limiting includes all passenger cars, motorcycles and commercial vehicles. Emergency vehicles and other law enforcement vehicles would be exempted from the speed limiting.
This is because the number of road accidents and fatalities have been on the rise. According to Deputy Minister of Science, Technology and Innovation Datuk Dr Abu Bakar Mohamad Diah, using a speed limiting device to stop speedsters 'would be a suitable method to reduce road accidents'.
He added that if enforced, it would put Malaysia on the map as the first country in the world to limit vehicle speed car based on speed limits in accordance with national law too.
While there are no details on how it would affect Singapore cars, let's hope this does not turn into reality!
