Smaller Role for Police
Because distracted driving and car crashes would be almost nonexistent, what need would there be for police, highway patrol, or state troopers to constantly monitor the roads? The cars could be programmed to never exceed a certain maximum speed without first being reprogrammed, making speeding tickets a thing of the past. Likewise, tickets for running red lights or stop signs could similarly vanish. This would give the police more time to focus on stopping violent criminals, potentially leading to a much safer society. And because the chances of a wreck would be greatly diminished, there would be fewer driving-related lawsuits, allowing the courts to run more smoothly and for less money.
