Just another gov't overreach. Instead of going after the real problem (bad drivers), the gov't wants to require everyone to pay more for vehicles. Good drivers avoid bad circumstances. They are called accidents for a reason. You can't avoid all bad. But golly, these bureaucrats are going to try to protect us for our own good. Enough already. Just leave us alone.

My driver's ed teacher said we should be allowed only a car with 20hp and a 30 speed manual transmission. That way we would pay attention to driving.

Anyone care to tell me how lane departure warning works on a gravel road? The bleeping thing would go off constantly. Another nany state move to save the world by making cars too expensive to buy or fix. Bill G.

obviously, the nut-jobs behind this have never driven on a CA freeway. Adaptive cruise control will not save ANYONE there because no one uses it. Of course these bozos will then just require that the auto braking and safe distance features be standard and operative ALL the time. In that case, nobody in LA will ever actually get to work before quitting time. Everybody, tailgates, speeds, switches lanes without signaling and speeds there. Bill G.

Not corporate lobbyists, government bureauocrats trying to justify their existence and guarantee thousands of more jobs for their buddies upholding their regs. Bill G.
