Commented On: Pedestrian Detection Is The Next Auto Safety Trend

@Adalberto, I hope not. I'd be the first to admit that teachers, not computers, made me who I am today.

As for instinct and common sense, both are being endangered by the digital revolution. People are more aware of the virtual world than the real world these days.

@Adalberto, there will be tangible benefits to autonomous cars, like retaining the independence of elderly or handicapped drivers. For those of us with a passion for driving, though, it's hard to be unconcerned about the implications of "unmanned transportation units."

I also see less of an emphasis placed on driver education these days, which leads to the misperception that driving is an easy task. It is, until something goes wrong at speed, and then it very suddenly isn't.

If drivers understood how violent a loss of control is at, say, 70 miles per hour, I seriously doubt texting while driving would be a problem.

@Adalberto, Jay Penske had the best education that money can buy. I see it as a character issue, not an education issue.

@Lawrence, I see that happening less and less with each passing year.

@Adalberto, I agree that era of F1 was special indeed. Compared to cars of today, these cars were much harder to drive and much less forgiving of mistakes.

@Adalberto, the problem today is that even concepts are designed with aerodynamics in mind, which limits what designers can do with exterior styling. Unless you're talking about coach built cars, I doubt we'll see anything with this much style again.

@Adalberto, I couldn't agree more. I'm indifferent about the styling of the 350Z and the 370Z (which was an improvement), but was blown away by the styling of the final 300Z. Nearly bought one in 1991, but the cost of insurance was staggering so I opted for an Eclipse GSX instead.

@Adalberto, I don't disagree. Still, conservative styling is what Audi buyers have come to expect, so if it isn't broken, why fix it?

@Jack, Ford isn't selling room here, it's selling safety. Sure, you can almost purchase two Fits for $30k, but neither will come with blind spot detection, lane departure warning or active park assist. You can't equip a Fit with adaptive cruise control either, no matter what you're willing to pay.
