Mykey From Ford Limits Your Driving Experience

Ford have designed a very new system called MyKey which is intended to assist in producing a safer driving experience for new drivers, who at times seem to think they are indestructible behind the wheel and that the laws do not apple to them, only others. The MyKey system enables parents to limit the speed of the vehicle and also the audio volume. The speed restriction is the obvious safety precaution, as when the speed which has been selected has been reached, the car will refuse to go any faster. The volume controller is merely an extra, but one which many of the public will be thankful for, eradicating the sound of five sub woofers blaring out heavy bass at every set of traffic lights with the windows rolled down. You know who you are!

Anyway, the MyKey system is expected to become standard on the Ford Coupe from as early as 2010, and other models will also adopt this technology including the Lincoln and Mercury. Owners will have the option to program a key to limit both top speed and audio volume, where the volume will be restricted to 44% total volume, and the top speed of the vehicle limited to 80mph. This will definitely assist in reducing crashes caused by reckless driving, so anything which is contributing to fewer accidents and fewer lives lost is definitely a good thing which we should all be happy enough to accept.

The system will also include speed alerts, which chime at 45, 55 and 65 mph respectively. Not only is this good for safety reasons, but it is also far better economically. Finally, the system will warn the driver of when the fuel has reached 75 miles remaining, instead of the usual 50mph, in order to prevent road users becoming stranded in the middle of nowhere.

Submitted by aldrin

It seems like a good idea
it should be able to sence using like a gps to see what the speed limit is and then give +- 10mph

Submitted by matt

I think it is a good invention

Submitted by caroline

:? This is a potential danger to all drivers. If the parent puts in a speed below the speed limit it could be dangerous it also could be dangerous to a person trying to go faster to get out of the way of an accident.

Parents will love it. Teens definently won't. I like the idea. 80 mph is a bit fast though

Submitted by Sara

Your message here.. :? :? :? :lol: :p :p

Submitted by Anonymous

I like it but I dont because 80mph is still fast I think it would be better at 60mph or 65mph

Submitted by matt

I think that can be pretty dangerous in some situations. Like overtaking for example.
sometimes you really need the speed to get the maneuver done and not crash into the advancing car.
this key won't prevent stupid situations but it could make them worse.
