Secret Car Speed Limiter Trials

Trials of the speed-limiting technology are under way or about to begin in Victoria, NSW and Victoria, with Queensland monitoring the results.

The speed-limiting systems operate off a GPS and maps of local speed limits to either warn the driver to slow down or cut power to the car's engine, making speeding impossible.
A motoring website claimed the Japanese release of the new model Nissan GT-R would be limited to 180km/h but with an inbuilt device to detect when it had entered a racing track and switch off the speed limiter.

A Nissan Australia spokesman said there were no plans for the technology to be fitted in cars released here.
