Bit of networking and cpu's in the cars also means we're just short of losing major choices. Soon you won't be ALLOWED to speed, waste gas or go where you are not allowed to go (what do you mean you want to drive across the country on vacation? Not if your car won't allow it...) First it will be for 'insurance reasons', then for the 'common good'. Say goodbye to more basic freedoms....

Think you've got people complaining about EM sicknesses now? Just wait till they find out about this. Power drain and costs per mile are going to put it too far out of reach (look around at the crumbling road infrastructure we have now and ask yourself if you also want a few hundred amps going through there, too...)

Air pollution is really making us pay through the nose.
