      tommo781,

       

      You should not stay up so late?

       

      Agree with you that this is a wonderful honour to brightlybob!

       

      Maybe, we can all get together later this year?

          tommo781,

           

          Yes, you are right!

           

          I am in Central Missouri, so I get my times wrong.

           

          You take care and have a wonderful day.

      I only wear a size 8 shoe, but I do take a wide width. I'm not sure how that translates to UK sizing.

       

      I'm on another county collecting trip heading to northern PA and upstate NY, so my contributions over the next few days will be limited. At least I'll have free Internet at the FFI and SHS locations I'm visiting so I can check in with the community each night.

       

      I expect brightlybob to be extra busy while I'm offline over the next few days. I believe Internet usage while driving is still frowned upon. I need Google to hurry up with that driverless car so I can focus on important things like taking pictures for my blog entries.

          IAHFLYR that's a pretty broad statement you just made and left yourself "wide" open for someone to comment...but I won't, no I won't, the H### I won't

          all about width? really?

        Now Bejacob, as it happens the missus (who is a college lecturer) is attending a seminar on the driverless car later this month, and has swung me a free ticket. As a lawyer the concept fascinates me, especially the changes in law necessary to accommodate it...

         

        Will you need a driving licence to drive these cars?

        How is insurance to be dealt with?

        How is liability for accidents to be apportioned (admitting of course that accidents will be a rare event without fallible humans at the wheel)

        Who's responsible on the rare occasions it speeds?

         

        When you think about the wider implications it makes your head go dizzy... Driverless cars will be virtually accident free, so expect huge redundancies amongst:

         

        Doctors and nurses (road accidents represent a huge percentage of ER/A&E work)

        Traffic cops

        Insurance companies

        Insurance investigators

        No win no fee negligence lawyers

         

        Furthermore since they're driverless and can drive themselves to you why have your own car anyway, after all most of the time the car simply sits in the drive devaluing faster than Marriott Reward points! So we'll become members of car clubs and then summon one of the car club vehicles to our home. Far less car sales, so no more fancy car salesrooms, and no more car salesmen, new or second hand.


        Driverless cars won't park illegally, so no more traffic wardens and as driverless cars being ran via a car club will be simply going from member to member there'll be no need for car parks. Goodbye NCP and the £60 hour parking meters in London. Indeed goodbye parking meters. Driverless cars wont need the same width of road that we need for our human errors, so our present roads will have capacity for decades/centuries to to come, so goodbye (almost) to roadworks (and road repairers), traffic calming, monitored motorways and of course speed cameras (hooray). Since driving crime makes up over half of all petty criminal cases it'll be goodbye to hundreds of judges, prosecutors and of course defence lawyers. Then there's all the admin jobs in hospitals, insurance, lawfirms, courts, garages that support the vast armies of doctors, nurses, cops, lawyers, judges, car salesmen, insurers, repairers, financiers and traffic wardens...


        It's gonna be a brave new world folks... And this will all happen in your driving lifetime if you're under 50!

                Luddite maybe but a bit of me is 21st century.  I have a sports car.  Where is the fun in not being able to do my outrageous "vroom vrooms" and embarass everyone who is a lot younger than me?

    Wow... My ugly fizzog as the feature! Woohoo... Fame at last! Thanks for your kind messages.

     

    I've not been around much recently as been on long court case and holiday, at Marriott of course!


    I can heartily recommend the Ren Barcelona Fira. I'll do a review on it in the next day or so, had a fab week stay there!


    I feel the weight of responsibility trying to fill Bejacobs giant contributory shoes...
