Sat-navs ‘Telling Drivers to Speed’ on West Norfolk Road
Temperton says that satnavs report a 70mph speed limit whilst the actual is 60mph.
He adds "Satnavs, while undoubtedly a great boon, are not infallible. They are sometimes inaccurate and won't always have the most up-to-the-minute information on things like new road lay-outs and temporary speed limits."
Representing satnav companies, the general secretary of Intelligent Transport Systems, Jenny Martin, reportedly argued that it was up to the Highways Agency to update the speed limit information.
