Replacing one problem with another

All we're doing is replacing one problem with another. Peoples inability to drive (decision making, sensory overload etc.) is being replaced by peoples inability to code properly!! Look at the number of bugs present in code that has to do relatively mundane things and then think of the number of bugs that will be present in code needed to drive a car!

I'm looked forward to the following in no particular order:-

1. BSOD whilst driving. Quick reboot is really important under these circumstances.

2. Sensor failures whilst driving....or more important, sensors going slightly out of whack.

3. Advistories suggesting you don't drive cars in certain conditions until fix xyz applied.

4. Viruses.

5. Looking at the firewall log whilst driving and realising someone is trying to hack in.

etc..

etc..

etc..
