Agreed. I was thinking highway, not other.
My guess would be transponders which tell the car the max speed and it
adjusts the chip. So, you could have transponders at a dragstrip which
tell the chip that max speed is 500 mph or whatever, which would free
the car to go at max.... on the Salt Flats it would say 1000mph and,
so far, nothing would be impeded.
Of course, the next step is automatic citations, which would free up
law enforcement for other duties (like guarding Dunkin Donuts as some
people seem to think is the only other thing we do).
.....or, it could be the lead in for auto piloting. The beginning of
the end for driving.
