Automatic Speed Limiter

Updated 7/23/2018

The Automatic Speed Limiter (ASLAutomatic Speed Limiter) function helps the driver to adapt the car's maximum speed to the speed shown on the road signs.

The Speed Limiter function (SLSpeed Limiter) can be changed to Automatic Speed Limiter (ASL).

The automatic speed limiter uses speed information from the Road Sign InformationRoad Sign InformationRSI function to automatically adapt the car's maximum speed.

Warning

  • The ASL function is supplementary driver support intended to facilitate driving and make it safer – it cannot handle all situations in all traffic, weather and road conditions.
  • Even if the driver clearly sees the speed-related road sign, the speed information from the Road Sign Information (RSI) function to ASL may be incorrect – in such cases the driver must intervene him/herself and accelerate or brake to a suitable speed.
  • ASL is not a substitute for the driver's attention and judgement. The driver is always responsible for ensuring the car is driven in a safe manner, at the appropriate speed, with an appropriate distance to other vehicles, and in accordance with current traffic rules and regulations.
  • See also the heading "Limitations for Road Sign Information".
