Fitting speed-limiting devices in cars could prevent up to 29% of injury accidents on the roads, a report by a Government advisory body has said.

The Commission for Integrated Transport (CfIT) said there would be real benefits in the voluntary introduction of intelligent speed adaptation (ISA).

This is a driver-assistance system that brings local speed-limit information into the vehicle.

The report was also prepared by the Motorists’ Forum, a sub-group of CfIT which ensures motoring interests and car users’ views are fully reflected in road policy.

The report has also looked at the impacts on fuel consumption, emissions, noise and road network efficiency. It concluded that on 70mph roads, adherence to the speed limit could lead to savings of up to 6% in CO2 emissions.

Neither CfIT nor the Motorists’ Forum is recommending the compulsory fitting or usage of ISA.
