Transport Canada GPS speed control

Engadget reports that Transport Canada is testing technology that uses GPS to tell where your car is, combine that with the speed limit, and control the speed of your car. If that is true, its an absurd example of excessive government intrusion.

Technology should be used to empower, to make life better, and to entertain - not to control. That goes for both government and business alike (eg music industry DRM attempts). Last time I checked, we are not Borg ("resistance is futile").

We have seen reports about this happening in the UK, but I thought we were above this sort of thing here.
