I discovered the Automatic Speed Limiting function yesterday, whereby activating it limits the car's speed to the limit of the road you are on and changes it accordingly as speed limits change. I also discovered that care is necessary when, for example, going from a 60 to a 30 limit, the car doesn't brake as smoothly as a driver.
It may save you from attending a Speed Awareness Course though - I recently received an invitation as I drove past the
IGC (Invitationn Generating Camera) at 49mph on an empty motorway when the variable speed limit dropped from 60mph to 40mph. The camera was mounted on the back of the first sign showing the new limit, so what I learned from the SAC was that gently allowing the speed to decay by lifting of the gas isn't sufficient and that the only way to avoid receiving an invite is to hit the brakes moderately hard if/when the variable limits change downwards.
