The daily STEW (Star-Telegram Editorial Writers): At this year’s big international consumer electronics show in Las Vegas last week, technological wizardry for automobiles, including cars that allow you to watch a movie or take a nap behind the wheel, drew lots of attention. How far are you willing to go in letting your car take charge?
I am all for safety through technology. If it makes it safer, I am all in. Gerald Mercer
As long as it gets me where I want to go as fast as possible (without getting any tickets, of course) without crashing, I’m all for it. Christina McClure
ZERO! I even hate ABS braking systems. If you aren’t able to pilot your car safely, with 100 percent on your own skills and abilities, then stay off the road. Although, to be fair, I do like my automatic starter, windshield wipers, power steering, etc. Crystal Castellanos
No thanks. The insurance companies will adjust very quickly. Think about it, they may deem it safer for the car to drive thus knocking your insurance down then get you on the back end by raising your premiums way up if you get involved in an accident while “you’re” driving. Charles Washington
It’s just a matter of time. Sooner the better. We’ll probably see a 50 percent [decrease] in gas consumption and severe drop in car accidents when cars start talking to each other and self-regulating the spacing between them. Warren Norred
If it means going to a bar and letting my car drive home, that works for me. John Obeidin
