Doesn't seem like a good idea to park all those nice Porsches overnight in Westbard.

A) They're VWs and Volvos, not Porsches.

B) Crime in 20816 is lower than 20814.

Well, the new Beetle does look kind of Porsche-y.

A more serious question - if self-driven cars all suddenly became self-aware, would they all immediately drive towards Westbard and try to run over Dyer?

I thought you said you were going to ask a "serious question".

6:02 Don't quit your day job to become a car thief. Hee. (You could end up with a warehouse of repainted Hyundais.)

And no. They would more likely seek to run over the Councilmembers that think that removing a car lane to accomodate and encourage bus-riding is a realistic and good solution to our transportation infrastructure problems.
