I think I'll take a test drive, but if I'm not there, start without me, OK.

Well they lost me when they said it requires two people in the vehicle as I am often in my car alone. I certainly do not wish to have to call someone and ask them to ride along with me everywhere I go just because my car requires it. What an annoyance that would be, and what if everyone had one, how would that second person get to my house? They would have to have someone else in their car to get to me. Someone isn't thinking straight.

But if on board computers drive cars and people don't we will have that many fewer Offbeat stories.

We must convince the computer to hit the brakes on this concept.

or worse yet, tell the computer to reroute you to some place they wish to be but you don't
