Yep I agree about an average 50 zone or maybe a 20, but outside of that, no thanks. And besides, you can use cruise control on an av speed zone anyway. So, EU, thanks but no thanks!

Yes that's what I do.
I just love cruise control. :D

I always use the cruise control in average speed zones. There are so many around here, all 30 or 40, the adaptive cruise just slots into the traffic and I can relax. Much less stress and it speeds up on it's own when the speed restriction changes.
I combine that with Waze for navigation and it informs me of when I'm entering an average speed zone. Anything for a stress free drive these days.

Speed limiter will be turned on with each drive cycle and audible beep and cluster message when you exceed the limit. Make a long press of 5 second on the steering wheel LM button to turn off.

When the car thinks you've exceeded the limit you mean.

Whether you have or haven't suppassed the limit is not strictly correlated to what the car thinks - the cameras are not good enough.

The problem I have is there is a slight delay between passing the limit sign and the car slowing down to what the sign is reading, by that time you've broken the speed limit and you'll get done. it needs to be able to read the sign ahead not behind.

When using the Limit function in my Puma it operates as you said, but when the new limit is lower it does not apply the brakes it only cuts the power so the car slows down naturally.
This is where the awareness and common sense of the driver becomes important, just as it always has been.
I would think that until all vehicles are fully autonomous then the human driver will continue to be responsible for their own actions.

I don't think any of us know exactly how the ISA speed limiter system will work for new vehicles brought on or after the 7th July 24. The UK standard seems very ambiguous and for which will likely mean manufacturers will initially interpret the requirement in a number of different ways.
We do know the new Speed limit system will be switched 'ON' every time the engine is started but beyond that I think we are all guessing. I would like to bet those taking delivery of a new car, ignorant of what is installed, will not be best pleased. In my opinion mixing vehicles with and without ISA system on our UK roads will be problematic to say the least.
It will iron it's self out, I am sure it will, but only after a whole load of controversy and when god for bid, in the future, vehicles with ISA system installed, it will be mandatory permanently on.

It wouldn't be so bad if you just had a personalised set up that you can select when you get in or is identified by the key and then you don't have to toggle all this stuff every time.
