The European Union has denied rumors of European lawmakers implementing mandatory 70-mph speed limiter on cars. Speed limiters, also known as speed governors, have been considered to improve safety. In the EU, cars with speed limiters could have cameras that could read speed limit signs and apply brakes when the speed is exceeded.

Could speed limiters improve safety? Should the US consider implementing speed limiters? The American Trucking Associations is pushing for 65-mph speed limiters on trucks, but what about on all cars?
