I just don't see this playing out as a system that automatically controls your car's speed. No government wants that. There is just too much revenue collected from speeding fines. Instead, a government wants to be able to record where you were at every moment in a completely opaque black box. Then, whenever you come in for a service just download your driving habits and fine you for each time you sped. Much easier than installing cameras all over the place and only getting you on rare occasions.

No government wants to help you automatically stay within the speed limit. There is not a government in the world that wants to shoot itself in the foot and dry up all it's revenues.
