Speaking to Express.co.uk, Mr Freeman said current UK laws “enables and entitles” drivers to break the speed limit in dangerous situations. He said drivers may need to break the limit “if someone does something stupid” which requires an urgent response.
Mr Freeman said drivers themselves were the “best-placed people” to decide how to react on the road.
He has questioned how drivers would be able to get themselves out of emergencies or avoid collisions if they could not temporarily go over the limit.
He said: “How is this situation going to deal with that?
“How is our speed being controlled externally by some sort of computer going to accommodate that situation?
