In the US unfortunately, if they tried that the main question would be "Who do you sue in case of an accident ?".
So the article says it rains over there like in Florida eh ? I was down the re a few times and you just don't go out in the afternoons. It rains every day, and the drivers who are out there are pissed off that they have to be out there. It is hot and humid as a steam bath and mind you I was in the Or lando area and Longwood which are both higher elevation. I imagine other pl aces down there are like a swamp.
Nice place to visit, in the winter when it is zero degrees up here. There a re a couple of things I don't like, first of all it is Bible belt, and then watching the TV the news anchor said "The legislature passed a law making it a crime to...". Bullshit, it is either a crime or it is not, they made it illegal. If it is a crime it always was and they were remiss in their du ty to outlaw it. If it is not a real crime it is them rent seeking. Either way, keep it. I am not saying Ohio is better, but I do know how to deal wit h the assholes up here.
Same for Singapore. I correspond with one of them and she likes it. She fee ls safe and secure, people have jobs and cars, but you can be thrown in jai l for spitting on the sidewalk. Know what ? They do not want your spit on t he bottom of their shoe where it will get tracked into the house and onto t he carpet where their kid crawls around. Extremely clean people. Their coun ty is not for me. But apparently it is for them.
But if the traffic in Singapore is like I have been told, that is an excell ent test for an automated driver. The tests we have had here required a hum an at the wheel, which makes it worthless. If they can make it really work for real, more power to them.
