Now this might actually work because for once, legislation from the European Transport Safety Council about legal changes to what drivers can do behind a steering wheel doesn’t rely on the amount of police on the roads.

What the new regulations say is that all new cars from 2022 will have to be equipped with automatic speed limiting equipment and come with the wiring already in place for built-in breathalysers. the regulations also say that vehicles with four wheels will also need to come equipped with data loggers, lane assistance, automatic emergency braking and drowsiness warning detection.

Originally, these plans were first put forward by the council back in March, they have now received final approval and that means that these ideas will pass into law. Whilst all models launched from 2022 will have to have the technology fitted, models already on sale will have to comply with the rules by 2024.


So far, the British Government has yet to confirm if these regulations will also apply in the UK – but the Government has previously said that the UK will mirror European road safety rules even after a Brexit from the EU.
