The World will* never be the same. The European Commission wants to introduce three things till the year 2022 on all the new cars:
1. Obligatory brake assistant (I think that’s the good decision)
2. Obligatory lane assistant (I think that’s the good decision)
3. And… OBLIGATORY SPEED LIMIT ASSISTANT, THAT WOULDN’T ALLOW YOU TO DRIVE FASTER THAN ACTUAL SPEED LIMIT (until kick down is held).
So, I generally understand what the aim is : to block the criminals on the roads. But it is simultaneously a bit too much of a restriction for me.
It should work like the actual speed limiter, there is only the question how long it will be possible to hold it over the threshold, for example during overtaking. Generally speaking, the World will be never the same.
So, I need to buy Porsche before 2022. I predict that the queue could be long at 2021, and the 2021 cars will keep their prices as used ones.
On my blog I wanted to popularize the safety driving assistants, to show you their advantages. If they become obligatory, I can’t see a point in my mission there any more. Additionally, the driving of some modern cars, has become very synthetic. I feel no connection with that cars any longer… Maybe I’ll have to take photos only, and tell you how awful the cars sometimes are?
Enjoy that 3 years and order your dream car before, not because we are criminals, but because we are free people who love freedom that the cars are giving us.
*The decision is practically forejudged.
