But of course the reason for US to release all ENC

Rolls&Royce was one of the last car manufacturers to introduce brakes on the front wheels and their prime argument for not doing so was that "If Rolls&Royce cars has brakes on the front wheels, they will stop so fast that it will be dangerous due to the risk of being hit from behind by other cars"
Almost the same argumentation used by the Norwegian coastal administration to protect them selves.
