Given the recent use of ordinary motor vehicles to multiple-murder 84 citizens in France and others in Germany and, only yesterday, more in England what can we do to deal with this new maniacal menace modus operandi?
Surely the inevitable future world of driverless vehicles needs bringing forward in time.
Governments of Western industrialised nations need to start pump-priming the future now.
Not only will the deadly weapon of the driver driven vehicle be taken away from terrorists and other homicidal maniacs, road safety and air pollution problems will solved. Citizens will save a small fortune by not having to pay for costly insurance policies. Police and other local government resources will be freed up from monitoring the behaviour of drivers. The problem of drink driving will vanish. Countryside pubs will flourish. Younger teenagers will be able to get home safely on their own, because adult age limits on personal motor vehicle travel will surely be scrapped for driverless cars.
As these vehicles will be electric in the foreseeable future. Therefore, engine and exhaust noise pollution for all those blighted by living along major roads will be reduced. No more laying out cash to replace rusted exhaust pipes!
Anyone with a south facing roof will fit solar panels to charge their transport for free.
Let's bring the future forward in the hi tech crime fight against terrorism.
