We’re going well beyond technology that can control the engine or keep you from skidding in the slush. We’re moving beyond telling your car to raise the temperature or play the latest from the Scrayper Boyz.

Combine voice recognition with only slightly more accurate GPS technology and a drunk can get behind the wheel, blow a .12 and have said vehicle automatically get him home, perhaps running the hazard lights as a warning to others.

Once your software is at the heart of that application, then it’s bound to be adapted by governments and traffic agencies for traffic control worldwide.
