The car that won't let you get a ticket

Whether you're in a rush or just not paying attention to the signs, it's easy to exceed the speed limit when you're driving around town. I understand, but the cops probably won't. If you're caught speeding, odds are you're going to get a ticket. That's why this car is so cool. It actually reads speed limit signs and slows itself down for you.

It does this by using a windscreen-mounted camera to monitor road signs and when the speed limit is lower than that maximum set speed.

The new feature is called Intelligent Speed Limiter. It lets you set an overall maximum speed, but you won't be able to reach over the speed limit. For instance, you might set the max speed at 75 mph, but the speed limiter will stop you well short of that if you're in a 55 mph zone. If the speed limit rises to 75 mph or 80 mph, the tool will allow you to increase your speed.
