How about just following the speed limits and stopping at red lights???...you'll save $129 plus the cost of all that gasoline that your car won't be consuming at the higher speeds.

THIS functionality could very easily be added to existing GPS systems. Don't waste your money on it!
Shame on Physorg for allowing advertising on its site!

Uh... GPS devices already do this and they are street maps as well. Why would you buy this device that can only beep?

plus the cost of all that gasoline that your car won't be consuming at the higher speeds.


Cars are usually more efficient at higher speeds.

Passenger vehicle-engines in North America exhibit their optimal fuel consumption around 90 km/Hr (45 mi/Hr), and this has been the case for over 20 years.

And Morpheus2012 is right, they were made BECAUSE of drivers like him :)

That's wrong, American vehicles since 1970 have been built to be most efficient at a sustained 1.9k rpm in any gear. In most vehicles this equates out to somewhere between 50 and 65 at top gear.

Sorry, 90 km/hr IS closer to 50 mi/hr...you're right. However, my original point stands; driving faster does lead to higher fuel consumption, and this device will NOT lower your consumption, and thus will end up costing you MORE money in the long run!
