:?: If a car using ALKS is involved in an unavoidable collision will it be the fault of the driver, who wasn't driving, or the fault of the manufacturer? That raises all sorts of interesting questions regarding insurance and correct vehicle maintenance.

More so in the UK where stoppages are more frequent.
Having driven many 100,000's miles on UK motorways the statement about frequent stoppages is incorrect. Can't remember the last time we were held up on UK motorways.
Well right now (Wednesday pm) on the M25..

Traffic at 25mph between Bluewater and Thurrock
30mph between Heathrow and Slough
22 mph around St Alban's and the A1
27 mph around the M11

Pre-Covid I probably spent about 2 hours per week stationary on motorways.

Errr, I don't live in that area because I'm not stupid. Live down south with the European drivers what do you expect?

Wow. That takes some doing. Turning UK motorway hold-up into being the fault of Europeans. Nothing to do with crappy UK infrastructure at all?

Only quoting part of a post in that way is bad form Bald Eagle :!: unless meant in jest of course.
