As reported by CNET: "A car that slows you down" (link via Digg)

Vehicles in London could soon be fitted with technology that would automatically slow them down if they break the speed limit.

Aside from the implications of turning your own property against you, I wonder when we would see the first traffic fatality because a driver was unable to exceed the speed limit when necessary to avoid an accident. The companies that create the technology had better be sure they provide a failsafe for such a situation.
