If you’re a bit of a lead foot, you may want to look into getting a new Hyundai.

According to NBC News, the new Hyundai Genesis is equipped with a system that both alerts drivers to speed cameras and slows the vehicle to avoid a ticket.

“It knows there is a speed camera there,” spokesman Guido Schenken told reporters during a session marking the Korean launch of the newly redesigned 2015 Hyundai Genesis sedan. “It knows where the speed camera is and it will adopt the correct speed.”

The system, which will only be offered in South Korea while its legality is debated in America, uses a database of known camera locations. Drivers are alerted about a half-mile before the camera and, should they fail to slow, the car’s automatic braking system kicks in to reduce speed.

The system does not work against roadside officers using radar detectors.
