Risks of mind controlled vehicles

Some risks of mind controlled vehicles are described.

It is now official, Toyota has announced that they are developing a mind controlled wheel chair. Unless Toyota is planning to take the world by storm by putting large numbers of motorized wheelchairs on the roads, I suspect this technology will soon make its way into their other products, maybe cars?

Of course, this will have some risks

  1. Cars may inherit drivers personality (ouch, there are some people who shouldn’t be allowed to drive)
  2. Cars with hungry drivers will make unpredictable turns into drive through lanes
  3. Car could inadvertently eject annoying back seat drivers
  4. Mortality rates for cheating husbands may go up (see http://www.thebostonchannel.com/news/1965115/detail.html, http://www.click2houston.com/news/1576669/detail.html, http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/news/840828/posts and a thousand other such posts)
  5. It would be really hard to administer a driving test! Would the ability to think be a requirement for drivers?

Can you think of other risks? I didn’t think I would come to this conclusion but I kind of like the way things are right now where my car has a mind of its own.
