Mobile Phone Speed Deterrent

Published onsdag 18 mars 2009 kl 12.51

Sweden’s road administration authority Vägverket has approved plans for a new high tech deterrent to speeding motorists.

Using common mobile telephones equipped with a GPS navigation system, drivers will be told when they are driving too fast.

Working with a traffic research institute VTI, and a number of private companies, Vägverket hopes to develop the technology which gives off a beep on the phone if a driver is going to quickly as well as setting off a flashing speed limit road sign as a reminder.

Other more expensive speed reminders have been given a test drive, including a vibrating acceleration pedal but the mobile is seen as a more simple and easy to use system.

Incidentally, it’s still legal in Sweden to talk into your mobile phone whilst driving.
