Mass manufacturer adds Origin b2 to accessories list

Vauxhall has taken the plunge and is offering a speed camera protection device as an accessory. Prompted no doubt by the fact that upcoming legislation (Road Safety Bill) is to allow systems that do not detect radar or laser beams to remain legal, Vauxhall has added the Origin b2 to its official accessories price list.

The dashboard-mounted Origin b2 uses GPS technology to warns you of approaching speed cameras. Vauxhall is selling the safety aspect too, pointing out that it can alert you to accident black spots, school and congestion charging cameras.

Only conspiracy theorists would judge the move to be a softener for more sinister remote control technology further down the road...
