NY Times : Cruise Control So Last Century

Danny Hakim of The New York Times writes about the new safety technologies making their way into today’s cars. Americans in general still want to control their cars, and are wary of even a train that drives itself. Japan gets to tryout this technology first while the marketers figure out how to sell the idea to Americans. The Prius in Japan can park itself. An Infiniti can keep itself in the center of the lane. I would like to see car manufacturers abandon what they think we want and instead give us great products. Who would have thought the Prius would have a nine month waiting list?
