'Mr Loophole' Nick Freeman warns of 'carnage' if UK adopts 'ridiculous' EU speed limiters

The new laws follow recommendations from the European Transport Safety Council, to reduce traffic collisions by 30 percent and casualties by 20 percent as part of a wider target of achieving zero road deaths by 2050.

Mr Freeman, who drives around 50,000 miles per year, warned that speed limiters could cause drivers to become “automatons”.

He added: “When you travel slowly you are lethargic, you don`t concentrate and so lack the adrenaline and awareness to drive safely. 

“We already have cruise control and that works well for those who want to self-impose a suitable speed. But the state is taking away our agency to be on the ball, to be engaged and be reactive drivers.
