Pedestrian power

Video of a driverless Nissan Leaf being tested in the UK. The stated aim is to test it on public roads if permission is granted.

Note how the car reacts when a pedestrian walks into the road. Changes the balance of power between motorist and pedestrian doesn't it? Cyclists too presumably.

Slowly, and smack down the centre line of the carriageway... it's being secretly driven by a very old person, possibly a Floridian retiree.

Sackers - but you can't see the hat. That's what I usually look for.

Yes, hats are worn in cars by the (a) old and over-cautious and (b) the young, aggressive and reckless. Should be 3 points on your licence for wearing one.
