this is the way it used to be - without any law being required... Sams PhotoFacts sold "repair manuals" for every radio, TV, and other electronic device - to repair shops that used to be more prevalent than coffee shops today. Even to home "hobbyist" electronics guys. We'd crack open the TV, pull the tubes, wander down to Allied or Radio Shack or Heath, test the tubes, buy the replacement parts, pop 'em in, and have a repaired set. And we even built our own TVs from kits...IIRC, you could get an Associates Degree in Electronics by building one of the big Heathkit TVs.
But the downside (from a certain point of view) - people repaired and kept equipment for many years - they didn't buy new every time a new model came out, so that had to be stopped. And the manufacturers got away with stopping it.
And I doubt this law will be able to fix it (pun intended)
New coast-to-coast Super Highway under development.
The DOT, in partnership with the "Big 3" automakers is proud to announce the innauguration of a new coast-to-coast superhighway to be constructed to replace the existing Interstate system.
One of the key features of the new highway are the vehicle-specific lanes which use NFC technology to detect the manufacturer and model of the car you are driving. For those who drive Corvettes (the "first" American sports car), your speed will be allowed to hit 125; for those with the new Ford GT-40, you will be allowed to hit 150. All foreign cars will be limited to 65 at all times as they are not "American" suppliers.
Manufacturers who contribute the most to our new Super Highway will be allowed to set the maximum speeds of their vehicles, and those who contribute to our Senators along the route will also be able to "throttle down" vehicles from their competitors.
