It’s not just drunk driving that Nissan wants to eradicate, but reckless driving in general. A new system that’s set to debut before the end of the year will help drivers avoid accidents. The system takes into account the distance between your car and the car in front of you, velocity and the presence of evil spirits.

For example, if you quickly take your foot off the gas pedal in response to motoring hazards in front of you, the car will automatically activate the brake. (I thought slamming on the break is a bad thing? Or maybe that’s only during a skid?)

All this technology when personal responsibility would suffice.
