The EU regulation, which finally came into force yesterday, July 7, establishes that all new models and types of cars that are introduced to the European market must have an ISA system. The rules do not apply to new cars that are in dealerships today.
Until July 2024, all new vehicles sold in the EU must be equipped with this new speed limiting system. Initially, already in 2021, it was said that this regulation would come into force in May of this year.
“The introduction of ISA is an important step forward in road safety and can significantly reduce road traffic injuries and deaths. Automakers now have the opportunity to take full advantage of ISA’s potential to create safer roads for all. according to a press release from the European Commission.
To contextualize, ISA works with cruise control to adapt the speed to the maximum allowable road. It has sensors capable of recognizing road signsespecially the speed to adapt.
Despite the obsessive system, the car never slows down not at least at the request of this system. According to various studies, this system will reduce collisions by 30% and fatalities by 20%. In addition, it is said that it will be able to reduce emissions by constantly adapting the speed.
Currently, there are already many vehicles that include this ISA system, and major brands such as Honda, Ford, Jeep and Mercedes-Benz sell some models with these systems in the European market.
However, let’s still proceed with caution, because, according to automotive experts, this system is not yet 100% effective. In one test by Autocar, the ISA system was slow to respond and at one point set a speed limit of 100 km/h while driving through a quiet English countryside.
