More tech in a car, great! More driver distractions, too!

Some drivers can't cope with driving, never mind adding more distractions. Sorry, i'm biassed, I know.

Probably inevitable this will be in all our cars before too much longer.

Whenever I am pushed to accept additional, technical gimerackery
in a device -- car, TV, washing machine, etc. -- I always ask:
"When it breaks, how much does it co$t to fix it?"

When some of that techno-fluff breaks, often the entire device is
inop.

Darn. I misunderstood the headline and thought they were proposing the new, never-before-seen concept of connecting multiple cars to each other so only one person has to drive.

Phooey.
