As I mentioned in the auto-lock thread...some technology is nice. Some of it is downright scary though.
I drive a car to get from point A to point B, enjoyably. I want to control my car. I don't want it controlling me. We live in a society today where people just don't pay attention to what is important. Driving being one of them. So many soccer moms yap away on their phones and text without paying attention, it's a daily hazard. Last thing I think we need is a car that will stop for you if are coming up on something or a car that can parallel park for you. Or a car that steers back out of the way if you change lanes into someone's path...or whatever. All of this is going to continue to happen, yes with the goal of saving lives...and they very well may save some lives and accidents.
But people are going to become content with it and get used to this tech. And because of that, even less attention is going to be paid to actually driving and minding your surroundings. That could lead to even MORE incidents in the future. This scares me a lot.
