It looks like the debate over speed cameras isn't going to quiet down anytime soon. One car maker has announced that a new vehicle will include technology to automatically slow down for speed cameras.

The Hyundai Genesis already includes impressive self-braking technology to avoid accidents. The new feature will use this brake technology and GPS to locate cameras and help drivers avoid tickets.

Speaking in Seoul at the launch of the Hyundai Genesis, company spokesman Guido Schenken told journalists that the car could identify speed cameras and slow down if drivers are going too fast.

So far, Hyundai has said this feature will only be available in new models in Australia sometime in the future.

We all know how frustrating speed cameras can be. But, they are a useful tool to keep drivers honest and control speeding on roadways. Hopefully, this new technology reminds drivers to slow down and doesn't increase speeding.

Here is a useful app to remind you to slow down.

What are your thoughts on speed cameras and this new technology? Let me know in the comments section below.
