Computer-controlled vehicles will be far safer than those under present-day all manual control. Equipped with electrical servo systems for activating vehicle controls, as well as miniature radio transmitters and receivers for communicating with roadside signalling systems and other vehicles, the computer-controlled car would receive and react to advance information about traffic jams, maximum cornering speeds, minimum following distances and whether or not the road is clear for passing. Having the facility to instruct the car to drive as fast as possible, or to conserve fuel, a driver would be able to leave the driving to the computer until he has arrived at his destination.
