no computer system should be able to 'apply the brakes', if anything they should only, and in the most restrictive sense possible, be able to disallow further acceleration. And when the system is in doubt or fails, it must ALWAYS default to doing absolutely nothing. Big brother my ass though, if it is illegal to speed, it makes sense that it shouldn't be possible for cars to speed. Such a feature should be on e default but should also be easily bypassed by the vehicle's owner. No fixed system can take into account unknown circumstances and as such this should be easily opt-out-able. I think most sensible people will opt-in though...
