Hyundai working on new system to defeat speed cameras

By ,

Reports from Australia indicate that Hyundai is working on a new system that uses GPS data to identify speed cameras and automatically slow the vehicle down to the legal speed limit.

A company spokesman, Guido Schenken, told journalists that the car ''will beep 800 metres before a camera and show the legal speed, and it will beep at you if your speed is over that."

Of course, we're talking about stationary cameras, here. Drivers would still have to beware of patrol officers along the highway.

This innovative system that prevents speeding tickets will reportedly be featured on the new Hyundai Genesis along with active cruise control and emergency braking technology.
