Kill Speed

maxresdefault (2)Traffic accident analysis in the United States and the United Kingdom found that 57 percent were solely by human factors and other causes in 33 percent of accidents are human factors were a factor. Only 10 percent of accidents were exclusively of non-human factors, such as mechanical failure or error is caused in the street. An obvious solution, which is being actively pursued is to replace the human driver by a computer, but that proved to be vulnerable to malicious hackers. The simple mechanical approach does not Hackable decreasing accidents, and especially fatalities, to limit the speed capability of motor vehicles would be.

The road is not a race track and the long national authorities imposed restrictions on the maximum speed, depending on road class. In the UK, the numbers in urban areas up to 30 miles per hour (mph) is limited, sometimes 20 mph in urban centers, while rural single carriageway roads are 40, 50 or 60 mph limited. The absolute speed limit on expressways and modernized highways is 70 mph. This means that each vehicle, anywhere on public roads is breaking the law, if it exceeds this speed. Why manufacturers must sell cars to travel to and even twice this perfectly legal speed?

Analysis of traffic accidents in Ireland, where drivers said to be conservative, found that 40 percent of all fatal accidents were caused by speeding. There is no reason to doubt that this number is representative of Western countries in general, and road mortality data suggests that an even higher percentage in low- and middle-income countries, where regulation is lax control traffic. Then, a change that resolves this problem could significantly reduce accidents, especially those where there. The loss of life The energy of a body moving with the square of the speed, twice the speed of a vehicle is four times potentially harmful energy in a collision to disperse. The death risk in a collision increases rapidly with increasing speed.

A typical small sedan in 1930, as the popular Ford 8, reaches a top speed of about 55 mph. He would be able to overcome today’s speed limit also in terms of the way individual tracks. A machine in accordance with modern conditions to be a 80 mile per hour speed, perhaps, would be quite appropriate for any reasonable order. The limitation imposed to prevent produced that would make a significant contribution to road safety, in particular in terms of fatalities.

Set a maximum authorized speed of motor vehicles is not to avoid any human error, as it could be achieved with the full computerization, but it would be much easier and less expensive to implement and would be immune to the effects of hackers. It would also be a non-renewable fuel economy, more environmentally friendly vehicles, generally through the use of smaller and less powerful engines. The vehicles will be more visible, as they should be: a means to be able to travel with Security for B
