California has one awful plan for drivers that the rest of the country will hate

California is where Democrats test their agenda before taking it nationwide.

Now the state is ready to make the life of everyone on the road more miserable. 

And California has one awful plan for drivers that the rest of the country will hate.

California wants to force new vehicles to beep at drivers who speed 

California’s State Legislature is considering a bill that would require all new vehicles sold in the state to alert drivers when they go more than 10 miles per hour over the speed limit by 2032.

The change is allegedly being made to reduce fatalities caused by speeding, according to State Senator Scott Wiener (D-CA), the bill’s sponsor.

“Research has shown that this does have an impact in getting people to slow down, particularly since some people don’t realize how fast that their car is going,” Wiener said.

California Office of Traffic Safety data cited speed as the cause of fatalities in one-third of automobile accidents, which is in line with national data.

“California, like the nation as a whole, is seeing a horrifying spike in traffic deaths, with thousands of drivers, cyclists, and pedestrians dying each year on our roads,” Wiener said. “These deaths are preventable, and they’re occurring because of policy choices to tolerate dangerous roads.”

The bill passed the State Senate and is headed to the State House before going to the desk of California Governor Gavin Newsom.

Drivers who go faster than the posted speed limit would receive “a brief, one-time visual and audio signal to alert the driver.”

The vehicle would have an internal GPS that tracks posted speed limits for roads.

California’s new speeding warning could affect the rest of the country 

State Senator Brian Dahle (R-CA) voted against the bill because he said that drivers could need to go faster than the speed limit in situations like an emergency.

“It’s just a nanny state that we’re causing here,” Dahle said.

As California goes, so goes the rest of the country.

“While the goal is to reduce traffic deaths, the legislation would likely impact all new car sales in the U.S. That’s because California’s auto market is so large that car makers would likely just make all of their vehicles comply with the state’s law,” the Associated Press reported.

California can set policy for the rest of the country because of the size of their market.

It often becomes cheaper for companies to comply with California’s regulations than to make two separate products.

Biden’s National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NTSB) recommended that the speed warning technology be installed on vehicles last year to reduce automobile deaths.

And the NTSB wanted to have speed limiters placed on the vehicles of drivers who are repeatedly caught speeding.

The European Union is requiring all new vehicles sold in member countries to have speed warning technology installed beginning in July.

Speed-limiting technology is one of the first steps to eventually taking away control of the vehicle away from the driver.

A kill switch is coming to every new vehicle by 2026 to shut them down when drivers are deemed to be driving erratically because of President Joe Biden’s bipartisan infrastructure bill.
