Driver­less cars ‘will lead to more bonk­ing’

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

SELF-DRIV­ING cars will lead to an orgy of peo­ple hav­ing it off while driv­ing on the mo­tor­way.

Com­pa­nies like Google, Volk­swa­gen and Mercedes are all de­vel­op­ing cars that will be driven by com­put­ers.

But one ex­pert reck­ons that will see a huge boom in in-car shag­ging which he reck­ons will be lethal as the on-board com­put­ers will need at least some hu­man in­put to keep them on course.

Bar­rie Kirk, of the Cana­dian Au­to­mated Ve­hi­cles Cen­tre of Ex­cel­lence, said: “I am pre­dict­ing that once com­put­ers are do­ing the driv­ing, there will be a lot more sex in cars.

Cana­dian Trans­port Min­is­ter Marc Garneau added: “The issue of the at­ten­tive driver is... prob­lem­atic.

“Driv­ers of­ten tend to over­es­ti­mate the per­for­mance of com­puter au­to­ma­tion and will nat­u­rally turn their fo­cus away from the road when they turn on their auto-pi­lot.”
