It's bad enough that drivers can't parallel their own cars that they had to make a car that does it for them...

"From the article"
Nevada lawmakers approved a bill this year allowing the cars on Nevada roadways. Another bill exempts operators of robotic vehicles from a texting-while-driving ban that takes effect Jan. 1.

Officer at the scene of an accident: "What happened?"
I don't know, I wasn't watching. The car was on autopilot while I was busy surfing the net and texting...

This type of technology is perfect for couples making out in the backseat, while having a joyride at the same time.

What other devices can be created to make man less dependent on their brain and common sense? Maybe a machine to tie ones shoes for them?

But what happens if there is a malfunction in the electronics? Lightening strike? Dead battery, etc.?

Man's brain and common sense behind the wheel killed over 33,000 people in 2009. I'll bet computer controlled vehicles could lower that figure considerably.
