Subject: RE: BS: Phone related traffic deaths
No different from forcing a human driver to give way, and just as open to a dangerous driving charge.
couldn't disagree more. Aggressive drivers have always been with us, but the mentality is that they would not be offending a brain, but a computer. And that computer will (they tell us) be far more vigilant, and faster and HAVE to respond. The philosophical answer to pre-existing idiots ignores the habituation of everyone to conditions. You drive to the norm, and in big cities the norm is less co-operative and more egocentric. Pace of life etc. If you don't believe, try living in the Cotswolds, Londoners seem to want to, in their second homes.
