Streetsblog New York City: Honda to Sleeping, Distracted and Aggressive Drivers: Don’t Sweat It.

Fascinating that the way they're selling safety features is explicitly as compensation. I didn't see this route as a way to autonomous vehicle adoption, and it's interesting that pre-loading expectations might also help pushback against lack of huge safety gains (like happened, or, errr..., didn't happen, with ABS) as we move forward with cars taking active control from the drivers.

We've had some visitors from out of the country lately, they are amazed that I drive a "stick". Gustavo said it well: "Automatics are for the handicapped". Dominic asked me if I drove stick to keep my wife from driving my car. He was amazed when I said her car is a stick also. We both like them.

The percecption is American (US) drivers are clueless, lazy and inattentive. Too many are. Instead of enabling distracted driving, we should re-enforce that driving is weilding 3000+ pounds of dangerous weaponry that demands attentions.
