    If you get a drunk on the Motorway, it would probably only happen once.

    Only too true, FourPart! I shan't worry about that, though, as I don't drink and drive. Not a good combination, though there are others that would probably disagree, given the state of some drivers....

    It could be a good idea if you wanted a few drinks, but didn't want to drive the vehicle. The law would probably include the edict that any driver, regardless of weather the computer was driving, must still be capable of driving legally, within the current limit for alcoholic consumption. That would render CPU control rather pointless on this particular score.

    There are already Driverless Buses in operation in Amusement Parks. True, they only go very slowly, but they have pedestrians all around, so the potential for the technological side of things is beyond doubt.

    I can go with that... Up to a point. This technology needs many years of thorough testing first before being unleashed on the road. I certainly don't relish the thought of not being in control of a vehicle because some software is driving....Thunderstorms can play havoc with CPU's and software, as can short-circuits...

    And 'hackers'.

    I prefer 'manual drive.' (it's hacker proof)

    So why are you using a computer instead of an abacus?
