Quote from: doorknob on July 02, 2016, 02:07:20 PMI don't want an automated car. I'm a control freak and I want control over my car not some computer. Computers make mistakes too and malfunction at times. Nothing is perfect.

QuoteShowing 1-10 of 17 reviews(1 star). Show all reviews1.0 out of 5 starsDisappeared after three daysBy E V January 10, 2015I would definitely not buy this again. The figure itself was fine when it first arrived, but three days after I put him on my dashboard he mysteriously disappeared. The car was locked at the time. Has not been seen since.1.0 out of 5 starsCheaper than a locksmithBy C H January 30, 2014I bought this because I keep leaving my keys in the ignition and locking myself out. So hoping the spring stretches long enough for Him to unlock the door for me next time. If He does, I'll give this review more stars1.0 out of 5 starsWe're in Texas here, not Canaan man...By X March 23, 2015Big mistake putting this guy in the car. I always carry a water bottle in the car for refreshment, and got into alot of trouble when I was pulled over for speeding after he changed the water I was drinking to wine. Maybe he thought that would be funny or something. Buried him in the backyard when I got home from that; he seems to have disappeared from the ground a few days later.1.0 out of 5 starsOh God, Loaves and FishesBy S S February 17, 2015Everything was great until I got hungry and stopped for a Fish Sandwich. Suddenly my backseat started to fill with buns and fish patties. Then, the front seat started to fill. Then I ran off the road because I couldn't see or steer from all the damn loaves and fishes. To top it off, my soda turned into wine, so that when the cops showed up, I got a DUI.On a side note, can anyone recommend a good upholstery cleaner that removes the smell of tuna from a car?.... You would think after His 3 day feat, He could at least get to my po box within 6 weeks ....
Quote from: SGOS on July 03, 2016, 07:18:32 AMWhen debating auto safety, we should be cautious to avoid a logical fallacy, for which there is still no name that I can think of. Let's call it the argument from perfection: "That can never work because it will always be flawed."
Quote from: doorknob on July 03, 2016, 08:10:33 AMMy point wasn't that human drivers are safer that is actually yet to be seen. My point was that NOTHING is perfect. I've never had an accident. Don't take MY right to drive manually away! Accidents will still happen regardless of human or automated drivers and which is safer is a moot point since automated cars are still in the works. Right now a computer has not been safer or as efficient as a human driver. When that day comes I still want the option to drive. But no doubt people with this opinion despite the fact that I've never had an accident and manage to avoid them on a regular basis my right to drive will be taken away by people with said opinion. Like I said I'm a control freak I want control over my car!
Quote from: Shiranu on July 03, 2016, 01:52:57 PMQuestion; How will these cars find directions in places with absolutely zero internet connection (or on areas like military bases where the maps of restricted)? As someone who has spent alot of time out in the middle of absolute nowhere... how does the direction service work when you are no longer in civilization?
