Marcus Aurelius: Self driving cars will have an unfair advantage.


And they'll spend the money on stupid shiat instead of cocaine.

HoratioGates: So now we are creating a database of the people who are obeying the law?


It sure as hell has to be easier than creating a database of those who aren't.

Sure. You have a 1 in a trillion chance of winning money if you follow the speed limit. But my odds of having fun blasting down the highway at triple-digit speeds are much, much greater.

eKonk: Result of implementing this?  Major traffic jams right before the speed monitors, followed by reckless pursuit of top speed just after.


Especially due to all those compulsive gamblers with the "the more you play the more you win" mentality.

"The idea? Put a speed monitor on a busy highway. But instead of simply ticketing the fastest drivers, the monitor would capture an image of the license plates of the drivers who obey the speed limit, then enter them into a lottery."

So now we are creating a database of the people who are obeying the law?

Another plus, drivers driving the speed limit can cheer on the speeders instead of cursing them.  Although, I've gotten to where it's like the lottery just watching them get pulled over after they shoot pass me.  About the same odds.

Now, what to do about the drivers going well below the speed limit, like ≥10 under the limit?  Something nonviolent like what pops in my head.  Ranging from yelling to ramming them off the road.  I don't do those things, but my inner voice keeps making good points for them.

I like the Dutch idea i read about years ago.  Topless women holding speed limit signs and urging motorists to slow down.   Maybe not the most effective, but that-of course-is not the point.
