    It shoul be mandatory to fit, all commercial and Public Transport Vehicles with Tachometers and Dash cams, so that Police and Insuarance companies can monitor speed, driving style and duration of continuous driving.

    I have a better idea .... we can connect a 12g shotgun above the drivers head with the trigger attached to the accelerator pedal !
