[Nfbc-info] driverless car

I just heard on the news today, Wednesday the 16th, that such cars will
require a steering wheel and a driver in case something goes wrong. How can
we overturn that or have it be recognized that a blind person could be
considered a driver?

Psalm 34:1-2 I will bless the Lord at all times: his praise shall
continually be in my mouth. My soul shall make her boast in the Lord: the
humble shall hear thereof, and be glad.

I have a question. My brother Joe and I had t his conversation last night.
He had to pick up his son from school after a wrestling tournament. He
didn't want him calling him while he was in the middle of cooking dinner
because of course he would have to go get him, end it impossible for a
person to be at in two places at the same time I said eventually I can go
get him because there is the whole idea and topic of the autonomist car Sent
