In all my years driving an automobile, I’ve seen the gradual decline of humanities driving skills. Texting and driving has brought out the worst in drivers. My children will ask from the backseat, “What is wrong with the driver in front of us?”. My parents used to say, “Well, he’s probably full of alcoholic beverages”, but I tell my kids he’s probably on his/her phone.
I’m all for mandatory yearly testing to remove drivers from the road that shouldn’t be allowed to maneuver a ton and half of metal that can potentially lead to vehicular manslaughter. I welcome our automated driving overlords! It will give me more time to eat, text, face booking. Can’t wait until people are augmenting their reality with VR headsets while driving.
