03/11/10 90 W - + 4 - 5 Reality Check on Unintended Acceleration

Speaking of cars driving themselves, which we really weren't speaking about, but, hey, let's pretend we were, here's a nifty New York Times editorial by a psychology professor who makes a convincing case that unintended acceleration is a human problem instead of mechanical defect.

Read the perspective. It's good stuff.
