Two-thirds back ISA for professional vehicles

  • August 28, 2014

Two thirds of British adults are in favour of mandatory speed controlling technology on commercial and public transport vehicles, a poll commissioned by Living Streets, a UK charity, has revealed.

Intelligent Speed Assistance (ISA) prevents a vehicle exceeding the speed limit. The YouGov survey found 66% of British adults in favour of it being compulsory for public transport vehicles such as buses and coaches, and 70% in favour for commercial traffic such as lorries and vans. Living Streets says that, as more UK local authorities move towards 20 mph speed limits, ISA could be a useful tool to regulate traffic speeds and make streets safer for vulnerable road users.
