Just about every major automobile manufacturer has a driverless car in the works.
Ford announced Sunday that it is recalling 370,000 cars sold in multiple states – including New York, New Jersey and Connecticut — due to potential corrosion that may result in the loss of steering.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration discovered during vehicle testing that the car exceeded a head injury criteria requirement. Ford says there have been no reported injuries related to the issue.
Auto manufacturing is back in America – especially in Michigan, Ohio and Pennsylvania because President Obama made the politically risky decision to bailout the auto industry after bailing out the banks. It was a decision that worked. Obama was right, Romney was wrong. So Romney is now in full lying mode. He is trying to retroactively re-write the wrongs in his writings.
Yes, it’s great that all turned out well for the auto workers, but it is absolutely horrendous to know that the American taxpayers via President Obama’s actions could have been left standing for billions of dollars – and still might.
Self-driving cars may sound like science fiction to some people, but in reality they have already arrived and their innovative features are sending the cars of today speeding towards a high-tech future.
