You just raised an interesting thought to me...

Assuming at some future point in time when vehicles are autonomous and obey the laws of travel, there would never be reason to stop a vehicle for a violation. Trafficking illicit stuff would become nearly impossible to stop because there would be near zero chance of stopping the autonomous delivery.

The future is going to get a lot more interesting, and I suspect, less private.

My personality is one of extreme candor and transparency, and I volunteer more than the information people would want to know. The difference is that I will not be compelled to share information which is not the business of others. It's the difference between giving something, and having something taken from you.

The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary. -H.L Mencken.
