Toyota Sportivo: the car that governs you

Patrick Gray of Wired News writes about a concept car Toyota introduced in Australia: the Toyota Sportivo. A driver would need to enter a memory card into its console to turn on its engine. Along with the typical stored seat adjustments, mirror angles, and radio presets, the car also shows you the location of your friends on your navigation display. Based on the driver’s hours behind the wheel and driving record, the car adjusts its engine performance, cutting back for motorists with less experience or bad driving record. The current speed limit is displayed against your speed and the car alerts and takes not when you exceed the limits.
