Reports of my death are almost true
by Jacek Artymiak
The guy who drove into me did not stop at the 'Give way' sign. It's his third crash in the last 3 months since he got his driver's license. He's 19. Who gave him the license?
I must say these dinky little Toyotas are built like elephants, the other guys Ford Mondeo estate is heading for the scrapyard. The next car I buy will be a LandCruiser with bull bars... No, don't teach me about protecting the environment. There were over 1,4 million old, mostly post-crash cars imported into Poland since we joined the EU last year. Everyone and their dog wants a cheap car and the roads are full of inexperienced fools behind the steering wheels.
How do we use technology to spot dangerous drivers before they ram into us?
More reasons why humans shouldn't be driving.
I worked in a lab for a while that developed sources for local radar at the 20-200GHz range. It was interesting stuff, and I think one day it might help us get to the point where most major roads have some sort of autopilot system. Merge onto a major highway, and just let the road take over. I see enough idiots driving in Chicago, I wonder how they ever managed to get a license.
