HIGHWAY GUARDIAN VEHICLE SPEED LIMITER
The Highway Guardian vehicle speed limiter is a breakthrough in technology intended for the safety of young drivers. Developed by law enforcement officers, the Highway Guardian offers peace-of-mind to parents looking for secure, speed-limiting protection for their teen drivers. Statistics indicate that automobile crashes are the leading cause of death for teens in the U.S. Every year, 140,000 serious injuries and 14,000 deaths occur in teen-related accidents. 40% of this is due to high speed. Young drivers are more likely than older drivers to speed and allow shorter headways.
Instead of relying on a vehicle’s speedometer, the Highway Guardian uses built-in GPS technology to calculate auto velocity. When speed is calculated above 73 miles per hour, the device temporarily interrupts the power to the fuel injection system through an electronic pulse module without shutting off the engine. As the speed decreases below 73 miles per hour, the Highway Guardian allows power back to the fuel injector system, allowing the driver to control acceleration once again. The built-in GPS system continues to work 24 hours a day, in any type of weather condition, anywhere in the world. The Highway Guardian is powered by the automobile’s electrical system and can be installed on nearly any vehicle manufactured after 1990 by any novice mechanic or a car savvy consumer.
