My view: "They can have my human-driving, petrol-burning noise machine/hot rod when they pry the steering wheel from my cold, dead hands!!!"

I've driven a car with driver assist features enabled...it's VERY freaky, to me, anyway! My Dad likes to "show off" how good his adaptive cruise control is...someday it's going to fail. Car mentioned is an MB 550SL Roadster. Driving it with the nannies off is a BLAST! Spirited driving with the nannies on creates confusion! I like cars with zero nannies - i.e. - the only input is from my eyes, ears, butt and the only control I have over the car is my two hands and two feet, i.e. - my brain is the traction control, ABS, etc. Driving is a "lost art" that is now relegated as a chore. Shameless plug - I am one of the track day/HPDE (High Performance Driving Education) instructors at Eagles Canyon Raceway (near Decatur, TX, an hour from DFW Airport). The track holds monthly Open Track Days where you drive your car and one of the instructors rides with you for the day, try it - you'll be HOOKED and the end result is a MUCH BETTER driver!
+1 :iagree:
