In the European Union, the police have all chances to be able to stop cars from distance!

One branch committee of the Council of Europe, European Network of Law Enforcement Technology Services has proposed the development of a universal system for any car sold in the EU, allowing engine shutdown from distance by authorities.

The initiative aims to avoid highly dangerous chases. The proposal came from three countries: Netherlands, the UK and Romania, and the tests for this kind of system will be carried out until September 2015.

If all goes as planned, the European Union will issue a directive, which will become mandatory for all member countries. Along with this system that can stop any engine from distance, specialized branches of EU also is testing a system called “Intelligent Speed Adaptation” which can limit the maximum speed of any car to a predefined value in a particular area (such as 60 kmph in settlements).
