New York lawmakers are considering legislation that would crack down on serial speeders by requiring the installation of speed limiting technology.
A bill introduced by Assembly Member Emily Gallagher and State Senator Andrew Gounardes would penalize drivers who have multiple speeding violations by requiring speed limiting devices on their vehicles that would prevent them from exceeding the posted speed limit by 5 m.p.h.
The legislation would require the speed limiters for drivers who get six or more speeding or red-light camera violations in one year, according to CBS News.
The law would require at the speed limiter to remain installed on the vehicle for least 12 months.
The bill’s supporters hope that it will increase road safety and reduce traffic fatalities.
Thanks to all who joined us today to propose our bill to install speed-limiters in cars of repeatedly reckless drivers who rack up 6+ speed/red light camera violations in 12mo. We already use this technology for drunk drivers; it’s time to hold speeding scofflaws accountable too. pic.twitter.com/ChvM6RcpsB
