Sweden’s answer to vehicular terror attacks: Remotely disabling vehicles

[Ed. – Sure.  Just like banning bump stocks, that’s bound to render terrorists impotent.  Especially in combination with stone lions.]

The Swedish government has proposed creating a “digital fence” in city centres using GPS technology that would either turn off vehicles or slow their speed in order to prevent terror attacks.

The proposal would use “Geo-Fence” technology that has existed since 2002 but according to Tomas Eneroth, Swedish Minister for Infrastructure, it has not been tested in areas as large as city centres. The technology, which is set to be put into a test phase next year, is meant to prevent attacks like the Stockholm terror attack that occurred earlier this year 24.hu reports.

Daniel Halldén, Stockholm’s transport commissioner said that since the attack earlier this year the city has increased security in the area. “Security on our pedestrianized streets has been improved. Directly after the terror attack we put out more stone lions, and we have also ordered heavier versions which are coming next year,” he said.
