    Not a major issue but it will be a big issue going forward ... imagine all the challenges to peoples rights or lack thereof to use and/or not use these cars.
    Spying on the driver, speed limits, a car that drives it's owner to a cop waiting for it ... etc ... you get the point.

    So buckle up ... if you're not pushing mushrooms by then it will be interesting.

    I'm thinking that it might make DUI enforcement a lot more interesting....

    They had an interesting write up on CNN this week about automated car technology - how the technology is making leaps and bounds towards reality.

    Interestingly they said the one thing that could derail it is people unwilling to give up control.

    I for one would love to be a passenger in a car. The cars in the movie Demolition Man were always something that seemed fascinating to me. Then again I am not a typical driver or "car guy". Got my license when I was 19 and growing up overseas, me driving wasn't a possibility (2 cars, 2 drivers).

    One quote from the piece also was interesting to me.

    "If we can make cars that don’t crash, then think about what that does to the cars we can build,” Belcher said. “Right now, what we build is cars that help you survive when you crash. But if you don’t crash, do we really need to two tons of metal? Can you use other materials?"

    Could be another factor in lessening our use of oil. Hybrids and electric cars aren't the savior to our driving related oil addiction in and of themselves. Personally I think hydrogen would be the way to go - cheap, abundant, reusable, clean; water vapor is the only byproduct of burning it.

    Anyway I find this topic thought provoking.
