Volvo forcibly limit the speed of all their cars to 180 km/h

As promised the leadership of Volvo in the past year, the company limits the maximum speed of the whole line of cars to 180 km/h with a special built-in function.

Built-in speed limiter will be supplemented by a system Care Key, with which the owners will be able to impose additional restrictions. This, in particular, can be useful to parents who give their cars to children who do not have sufficient driving experience.

That is why there are speed limits. But the excess remains widespread even in European countries with huge fines, not to mention Russia. Studies show that on average people do not sufficiently understand the danger of this kind of violations.
