Utterly pointless. What proportion of bikes are E-bike.  Even then how long will retrofitting take.

“I saw a child playing with a football on my screen. A little later I got into the red and..." maybe some dodgy Google translation going on there, but this makes absolutely no sense at all. Sounds like she was using a simulator or something. Very odd. And I really don't believe that more than half of all e-cyclists exceed the 25kph limit. Unless there are that many modified e-bikes in Amsterdam, which is unlikely, that sounds like utter BS.

Obviously, this is needed for cars first, especially because it will have zero effect on pedal-powered bikes, or e-bikes with riders who are capable of pedaling themselves. It therefore seems like a big waste of effort.

If you can do it with bikes why not do it with cars and vans too?
