California bill would mandate all new cars have this device to limit how fast they can go

The nanny state is in full swing across the country.

And nowhere is it more overreaching than in the radical leftist state of California.

Now this California bill would even mandate all new cars have this device to limit how fast they can go.

A California Democrat state legislator has introduced a bill he claims is “groundbreaking” that would require all new cars sold in the Golden State be equipped with a device preventing them from going more than 10 mph over the posted speed limit.

Using the state to force behavior modification

State Senator Scott Wiener, a Democrat from San Francisco, introduced the “Speeding and Fatality Emergency Reduction on California Streets Package.” 

The bill includes a provision that, if passed, would require “new vehicles sold in California” to “install speed governors, smart devices that automatically limit the vehicle’s speed to 10 miles above the legal limit.”

In a press release from Wiener’s office, the nanny state Senator claims, “These changes are a head-on attempt to tackle vehicle fatalities, which are surging across the U.S. — and especially in California — amid a rise in reckless driving since the onset of the pandemic.”

“A recent report from TRIP, a national transportation research group, found that traffic fatalities in California have increased by 22% from 2019 to 2022, compared to 19% for the U.S. overall. In 2022, 4,400 Californians died in car crashes,” the release continued.

But that’s not all Wiener wants to do.

The statist bill package also “requires side underride guards on trucks, to reduce the risk of cars and bikes being pulled underneath the truck during a crash” and “physical improvements like new crosswalks and curb extensions on state-owned surface streets to better accommodate pedestrians, cyclists, the disability community, and transit users.”

Hypocrisy at its very worst

For a radical Democrat like Wiener who is all in favor of the mass murder of innocent babies, his attempts to force these new programs on California drivers is hypocrisy at its worst.

In fact, Wiener’s press release argues that he is pushing the radical changes to “slash” the “California road deaths epidemic.”

He apparently is quite alright with the deaths of not tens of thousands of innocent babies, but also seems perfectly willing to accept the rising number of deaths from California’s growing crime rate.

Instead, Wiener wants to impose more nanny state policies in order to try and change Californians’ driving habits. 

“The alarming surge in road deaths is unbearable and demands an urgent response,” Wiener said. “There is no reason for anyone to be going over 100 miles per hour on a public road, yet in 2020, California Highway Patrol issued over 3,000 tickets for just that offense. Preventing reckless speeding is a commonsense approach to prevent these utterly needless and heartbreaking crashes.”

Of course, not everyone is in favor of the legislation, and social media erupted with negative comments about the legislation.

“Imagine an empty highway in the middle of the night and you can only go 65,” author Richard Hanania posted on X. 

And former San Diego County Board of Supervisors candidate Amy Reichert wrote on X, “Just when you thought California couldn’t possibly get any crazier.” 

Wiener would be far better off trying to curtail the mass murder of babies in California abortion mills, or concentrating on trying to stop the rise of violent crime across the state.
