    "driver can override the system by pushing the accelerator " 
     
    So its basically just having the option to set a speed limiter ( like a lot of cars have anyway) except this would allow the car to adjust it to changing limits. Seems fine to me, since it doesn't say its use is mandatory, just having it as an option.

    This , slippery slope .
     
    No doubt the 'smart motorways' will be set to enforce the limits at some point after some massive HGV ploughs through a load of stationary cars .
     
    Problem , reaction , solution.
     
    Now if I can have a self driving car where I can sit back and do some reading id probably go for it , until I browse so some video covering a peado ring or an anti EU video and then the car will probably end up in the nearest river.

    If you’ve been on those specs cameras roads you’ll know the issues that will come with auto limiting cars. You go to over take a slow moving car, the c*** accelerates and you’re left there like a dick. Now do that when overtaking on a B road and you’re destined for endless head on collisions.
    Than again maybe they use the same defence as wind turbines killing wildlife, just pretend it’s not happening as it suits them.

    Aye agree, its gona be a painful process but i can see it happening either way in the future , faces glued to a mobile or a tablet and let the car drive . The smart motorways aren't very smart at all, im pretty sure they are just designed for cash extraction , 70 to 40 to 60 to 30 all within about 500 metres with no cars in sight, a trip to london for me now is like crossing a financial minefield, I think this is designed to frustrate where self driving will be the solution. Pretty sure this is part of agenda 21 from the UN

    100 years on and youll probably have cars that can only go where they will drive you(allowed areas) and just getting up and going somewhere you want to will be a thing of the past

    It's not really that terrible a thing though really is it? As long as it applies to every car on the road then surely it will make it better for everyone. If your car is restricted but you still get cvnts speeding past you then that's when it will get annoying. If it stop d1ckheads from getting right close up close in my rear view mirror then I'm all for it.
     
    Fully autonomous vehicles will eventually be the future anyway, so enforced speed restrictions will happen.
     
    I regularly break the speed limit, so its not like I'm just saying it because it wouldn't apply to me. Just the same people moaning for moaning sake as usual.

    what if you type in your destination and it says " sorry restricted area"
    Takes a longer route 
    what if a car in front of your breaks down
    what if a car does 20 mph in a 30
    what if your stopped at the lights and get car jacked 
    what if a bit of cargo at the side of you rolls of a lorry and is going to land on you
    Car gets hacked and crashes 
    woud the car sacrifice the driver and car or the children that jump out in front of it ?
     
    in theory its a brilliant idea , but  bit like welfare /i think the unintended consequences will be worse.

    Which area's will be restricted then? 
     
    Everything you say is indeed a potential problem, but like you say they are 'what ifs'. It's like saying 'what if an earthquake causes the road to split in two?'
    Autonomous cars will only get smarter, and when the roads are only used by autonomous cars then everything should work more efficiently in general, like most computer systems do, eliminating human error which is the main cause of accidents I'm sure.
     
    A lot of cars now have speed restrictions that you can set yourself, they can lock onto the car in front of you, brake and even stop/start when traffic builds up, they can pull you back into the lane slightly if you go over the lane markings. You don't have to do anything other than hold the steering wheel.
     
    I am talking more about motorways and major roads though, I probably should have mentioned that in my first post, so my bad there.

    If you look at agenda 21 , there will be urban areas and restricted areas . If there was a huge protest forming outside downing street they could quite easily stop your vehicle coming within 50 miles of the area . Very easy way of controlling where the population exists.  
     

     
    AI will get smarter but we are a long way from having machines that can make human like decisions despite what they tell you , yes games like chess , machines are now superior , but games like quake that needs a human brain and strategy are a long way from beating humans , and even with this it took a human to programme it and it will take a human to update it and they are human based algorithms . f they have self thinking AI it might decide to kill everyone , if they have command based AI its going to need a human behind it .
     
    Even if you just did this for busses , you can never stick to times accurately because of a pensioner coppering up or taking time with his walking stick , I think we need some smaller scale examples of this working before im sold . Even when ringing HMRC now its very difficult to speak to a human and the automated systems dont always get the job done , if anything its extremely frustrating. Self service ailes fail about 50% of the time ( energy drinks/age checks) If the answer to all of these problems is for someone being microchipped with age/detail and currency then we really have gone to 1984.

    Agenda 21 doesn't mean that they will just end up restricting everywhere.
     
    I didn't say autonomous cars would happen overnight, more like 10-15 years time. But its definitely happening, wouldn't you think that advances in technology and AI etc... is a good thing? 
     
    A lot of people moan about google 'spying' on them, because they monitor their phones whilst its still in their pockets, location data etc. But its actually so that the services they provide can be better. Google Maps for example, it works better than any modern satnav, traffic updates are bang on, and its free. Who wouldn't want that? If everyone turned their location services for fear of being 'spied on', they would then be moaning about google maps not working.

    I have no problem with google spying as its in the ULA and everyone accept it  , its the sharing of data that I don't agree with . I think AI improvements are a good thing but it can also be bad.

    This is worrying and could easily spiral out of control in a war games scenario , time will tell i suppose.

    Self driving cars sound very boring although I see how other things could be done if not driving, but obviously less control. I don't like all Icke stuff but it's good at explaining this slippery slope.
