Was about to say the same. A fair few of my mates are HGV drivers and they'll tell you that every single day they have a car doing 50mph in a 70, they go to overtake and you can guess what the car does... Limiting them might be a good idea but how many of us have been cursing said HGV driver when in reality he's just as frustrated as you are at being "stuck" in an overtaking lane.

Obviously won't happen to you every day but we know there are people who will do that to you.

which is why while they are limited to 56 usually legally they can do do why not allow a "push to pass" button to allow the extra few mph to pass

Sounds like nonsense to me. However, if any mug nation would rush out and implement such a thing it would be us. The rest of those who embrace the idea of an integrated Europe would probably agree to it but never actually apply it.

I expect the inevitable adoption of such technology in private vehicles will not be driven by European bureaucrats or even our very own swivel eyed loons in Westminster, it will be those bastions of free market capitalism, the Insurance companies that ask if you have "incident recording equipment" or "local environmental user override systems" fitted. No? Well that's OK, you can still get insurance of course, for the right price.
