I'm saying nothing!

Do you know if 'Thames Valley branch lines' includes Reading to Newbury? Wouldn't be surprised if some comic came up with the idea of stopping electrification at Woolhampton!

NEWS


SAN FRANCISCO, March 19 (Reuters) - A woman was killed by an Uber self-driving sport utility vehicle in Arizona, police said on Monday, and the ride-hailing company said it had suspended its autonomous vehicle program across the United States and Canada.

The accident in the Phoenix suburb of Tempe marked the first fatality from a self-driving vehicle, which are being tested around the globe, and could derail efforts to fast-track the introduction of the new technology.

The vehicle was in autonomous mode with an operator behind the wheel at the time of the accident, which occurred overnight Sunday to Monday, Tempe police said.

"The vehicle was traveling northbound ... when a female walking outside of the crosswalk crossed the road from west to east when she was struck by the Uber vehicle," police said in a statement.

So not as safe as some people would have you believe huh.

So then, that's Muslims, Jews, Socialists, Russians, Europeans, Cyclists, uber drivers, Council employees, railway staffs, social housing tenants, all out to get the local people in Newbury! The World beyond Thatcham is pretty scary huh.

But, on a slightly saner note, VW post record sales and record profits, so it didn't do them much harm! ohmy.gif

VW manually controlled cars, with all the others, kill and maim far, far more every day than any 'driverless vehicle' on a mile for mile basis and driverless vehicles are still in pre production testing. Presumably you'd refuse a sea cruise on the basis of what happened to the Titanic.

They even had time to feed toxic fumes to monkeys I see and even to their close relatives: humans.

Yup! Isn't science wonderful laugh.gif all those people who said, getting rid of my VW, Nasty, dirty things apparently walked back into the showrooms and bought, VW's. You have to smile, you really do. laugh.gif :lol

Meanwhile UK law has now drawn a line in the sand regarding the vexed question of who's to blame if you're driving an autonomous car and it injures another person. Turns out you will need to be in control, is; hands on the wheel and in a position to take immediate control, the car must also have had any modifications done whatsoever and be fully and up to the moment updated. So some people's vision of sitting in the back reading the paper isn't going to happen anyday soon.
I for one say good.:

So why have a self driving vehicle if it still needs a driver? I appreciate the desire to have an array of sensors that stop me hitting the neighbours wall or running their cat over, but a self driving car that I can not use is a total waste of development resources.

About to see BMW’s trading figures go through the roof then! Mind you, a couple of Dubs are sat on my drive most days, one of them may have contributed to the Dubs trading figures a while back!

Sorry, nothing sexy, one’s a Mk 6 whose DPF failed (bit steep) and one’s an Up! which is a tidy car. I prefer old skool stuff, I’d have an early Golf GTi like a shot! But of course, such is the value of classics, I think anyone would!

Mk six is tidy enough, worth getting the filter done I would have thought. Get an indie to do it, not too expensive. Shame to let it just sit there. It's funny how they keep putting design clues in the new ones that hark back to the original. I keep wondering about getting a 3.2 just to hoon around on s Sunday pm.

Around 60k, but not sure. The car is my littlun’s who said the coil came on other day so went for a drive to Reading and back; should’ve got a petrol really. Don’t do the miles to get the benefit of a diesel.

First thing, try putting it on the M4, put it in fifth and run it for at least half an hour, without slowing or stopping. This will give it a chance to to an active regeneration, that might do it. It's important to keep the revs at around two thousand two hundred. That's the key.
