The European Union is proposing that all cars within member states be fit with a device that would not only gather data on their driving, but would forcibly apply the brakes if the car is going to fast. Aside from the obvious danger, this is yet another example of Eurocrats micromanaging the lives of its serfs.
The truly Orwellian feature, though, is that cameras would be installed in each and every car. Not just new cars, but older ones might be required to be retrofit to accommodate Big Brother in Brussels.
The E.U. is truly planning to ride shotgun on everyone!
A little driving mood music:
