What is the New Zealand government doing a speed limit study in the USA for?

Ford's got a new Kangaroo coming out next year.
==============================================
No, no, silly! You're always getting that mixed up.

It's the new Ford Kiwi, a new sporty metro that great on looks and on gas milage. It's hip! It's new! It's NOW! And it's under $20,000. The new Ford Kiwi-- just watch this bird go! Have you driven a Ford lately? (

And coming soon: The Toyota "Cantilope")

Here's a zany idea...

Take the damn speedometer out of the car. That, and get rid of cruise control. Return the driver to being an integral part of the operation of the vehicle.

Seems many people spend more time behind the wheel concerned about how they're driving (and, in an equal number of cases, the exact opposite), as opposed to the act of driving itself. If you yank that infernal needle out of the dash, most sane people will travel at a pace comfortable to them and their abilities, leaving them to focus on their environment and potential hazards, as opposed to constantly taking their eyes off the road (bad thing) to check their speed.
