Reuters reports that the British government is considering a law that requires all motorcycles to be fitted with a speed limiter preventing them from being ridden "too fast"...
Electronic speed limiters, already fitted on some scooters and high-performance bikes, could be required by law if the government adopts the committee's ideas.
