And Then A Road Error...

Further to the interesting news that trucks may soon be traveling our motorways in computer controlled convoys along with zero driver input computer controlled cars, could the road sign below soon become an all to familiar sight, along with the hundreds of seemingly abandoned cones, on our highways and byways? Surely, all this driverless traffic isn’t going to rely on Windows 10. Is it?
While on the subject of transport and the striking similarity between road convoys and trains, I remembered a joke/urban legend from a long time ago so set off in search. A search that proved quite hard. I did finally remember a rendition of said story by Jethro and a further search, refining my search criteria to ‘Jethro’, showed I inserted the video as long ago as 2013. I believe 2013 qualifies as ‘a long time ago’ when you reach a certain age. It’s still funny after all{?} these years although the sound quality hasn’t improved with time.
Here’s a link rather than embederating.

“Time goes faster the more hollow it is. Lives with no meaning go straight past you, like trains that don’t stop at your station.”
