what decision will the car make?
will i be happy to allow it to make that decision?
- will i still be happy for it to make that decision if my 2 kids are in the backseat?
All very good questions that no decision-makers are allowing themselves to be seen asking.
To the government none of this will matter, its already a done deal that In a few years this technology will become 24/7 mandatory. Google are already trying hard to get driving controls out of cars totally.
Regardless of the fact that nearly all of society does it every day, we will be told by the government that driving is an activity that humans are completely incapable of doing safely (somehow these human shortcomings won't be an issue if you work for the government or have a cop badge), and all the treehuggers will totally agree with all the brainwashing because think of the children.
It wont be long before anybody demonstrating independent thought by trying to take control of the vehicle in any way will be considered as unnecessarily endangering lives and therefore a criminal. Mark my words. The loss of your family due to a bad decision by the car in an accident will be considered as "just unlucky" by most people and you won't be able to do a damn thing about it. Welcome to the Google age.
