Motoring lawyer Nick Freeman has warned new EU speed limiter rules could make driving “unpleasant” and “boring” and comes with massive safety risks. He warned drivers will become “lethargic and “complacent” behind the wheel which is likely to lead to accidents.

Speaking to Express.co.uk, Mr Freeman added drivers will likely collide with cars in front because everyone will be “too close”.

He said: “Motoring is changing at a rapid rate.

“If these steps go ahead it’s going to make motoring a really unpleasant and boring experience.

“People will become lethargic when they’re driving.

“With no adrenaline flowing, it will be hard for them to concentrate because half the job will be done for them.

“You need to have the adrenaline flowing, you need to be concentrating.

“When you’re driving you need to focus: What’s the speed limit? How fast am I going? Am I within the tolerance zone?”

He added: “You don’t want your brain to become dormant as that’s very dangerous when you’re driving.

“It becomes dormant and lethargy sets in and you then become complacent as sure as night follows day you’re going to have an accident.

“You’re going to collide with the car in front because you’re going to be too close to that car.

“Everyone is going to be too close to each other because you’re not going to be able to establish the speed to put the distance between you.”

The new EU speed limiters will use sign recognition cameras and GPS data to stop drivers from breaking road restrictions.
