Bike Information: Extra on Kill Switches and Velocity Limiters and NIMBY.

What it is advisable know… That is going to occur, sadly, ultimately.

State lawmakers in California at the moment are pushing for digital velocity limiters for 2027 and past autos. That is in addtion to the work on the federal degree on this difficulty.

The Biden administration, by way of the Inflation Discount Act (IRA) and the Nationwide Freeway Visitors Security Administration (NHTSA), have launched Kill Switches and Velocity Limiters for 2027 and past autos.

NHTSA is asking for public enter. Please be sure that you present enter  concerning this new proposal at by trying to find the docket quantity, NHTSA-2022-0079, and observe the directions for making feedback.

My Take – It is a huge DOWN SHIFT for particular person freedom and the suitable to journey.

What it is advisable know… “Not In My Yard” is coming for a well-known American racetrack.

Laguna Seca raceway is underneath assault as California NIMBY coalition seeks to shutdown world well-known monitor.

Stating that the racetrack is a “public nuisance” the “Freeway 68 Coalition” cites the next:

                        Elevated use of the monitor.

                        Sound ranges are greater than permitted ranges.

                        Claiming that zoning prevents racing.

                        Elevated visitors

                        Insufficient and poor-quality water

                        Insufficient sewage disposal as a consequence of enlargement of tenting.

Laguan Seca is now owned by the County of Monterey and generated $250 million {dollars} in 2022.

My Take – One other huge DOWN SHIFT.  Approach to usually these NIMBY efforts are profitable.  Love Laguna Seca now, it won’t be there sooner or later.

Experience on, Experience Protected
