Parliamentary questions
14 October 2013
E-009830/2013
Answer given by Mr Kallas on behalf of the Commission

The Commission is not working on plans concerning compulsory installation of speed limitation devices in all cars and is not aware of the report "UK fights EU bid to introduce speed limit devices".

The Commission has launched in 2013 an ex-post evaluation study on the application of Directive 92/6/EEC(1) on speed limitation devices of commercial vehicles. The general purpose of the study is to provide an independent, external evaluation of the road safety, environmental and economic effects of the legislation in force. In line with the explicit call on the Commission of the European Parliament(2) to "draw up a proposal to fit vehicles with "intelligent speed assistance systems" which incorporate a timetable, details of an approval procedure and a description of the requisite road infrastructure", the study also assesses possible application of intelligent speed assistance systems to light commercial vehicles.
