Today’s Globe and Mail has a story about the testing of a unit that uses GPS and a digital map to let drivers know (and possibly prevent them from) speeding. From the article: “[The] device, which can be updated on the Web with new digital maps, can also be set to tip off drivers about high-risk intersections, pedestrian crosswalks, deer crossings and red-light cameras. The system can be set to go off when the vehicle is travelling anywhere from 2 to 10 per cent above the speed limit. The voice alarm can also be turned off.”

As indicated by the comments posted below this story indicate, this is sure to be a controversial tool if it is ever implemented.
