Jim Karygiannis Scarborough—Agincourt, ON

moved for leave to introduce C-568, An Act to amend the Motor Vehicle Safety Act (speed limiters).

Mr. Speaker, I am pleased to introduce this legislation, an act to amend the Motor Vehicle Safety Act, speed limiters. I thank my colleague from Kitchener—Waterloo for seconding the bill.

Each summer we witness carnage on our highways caused by excessive speed. This legislation would require all vehicles manufactured after January 1, 2010, to be equipped with speed limiters so vehicles cannot travel at more than 150 kilometres per hour.
