    • Site Upgrade   11/18/2017

      The Forums will be down, Friday, November 24th starting 8 AM PST for upgrade.We'll probably be down until 1PM PST, but it might be longer. I'm doing a major forum software upgrade, so I expect the forums to operate somewhat differently when we come back online.  Update: I've had a medical issue come up, and this window might not get used. If it doesn't, I'll push the maintenance back to Saturday, 2 December.

    The state HiPo had cars like that around that time.  They eventually had them taken away as the patrolmen thought they were race car drivers and were causing too many accidents.  They also complained that there was not enough room for their gear and a lot of the times could not transport the person arrested because there was no room in the back seat area.

    There was a poll done recently, and if the poll is a true random sampling, people do not want anything to do with autonomous cars.  The reasons are what we on this forum have been discussing for some time.  They can be hacked, and as great as their proponents claim, their will be problems.  And since we know our political leaders will not legislate who is responsible for the problems (i.e. the car makers or their third party contractors), the courts will have to decide.  We all know that the courts move at a glacial pace.  Furthermore, the corporations all have their ways to try and cover up their misdeeds.  It will be years before any problems will be widely known and many people will be killed or maimed.
    The other issue that many seem to overlook is that many people in this country live in rural areas where self driving cars will not operate well.  No one that I know has indicated how they will travel on a gravel road.  And mass transit will never reach these people.
