Comment: Recognizing red lights (Score 1) 280

The other day, I was driving down the road, and I thought I saw a red light coming up on the left lane, but the light on the right lane was green. When I got closer, I saw that the red light was really on the cross street, but the light had been knocked askew so it was visible on my street. Could a self-driving car deal with that problem? And if the light emitted some signal to the car, what happens when (not if) that doesn't work?

The crocodile and nautilus haven't changed much for millions of years. They found a niche and didn't have reason to change. We could do the same.

I actually had a debate with someone about that:

Him: If evolution is real, why haven't cockroaches evolved?
Me: Because they didn't need to.
