Amazing innovations in driving have been announced by researchers in the USA.
Software has been developed enables a car to stay within a lane while being aware of other cars. Car signs can even be read and it would be impossible for cars to be parked outwith designated parking areas.
Women's groups all over the world are up in arms at the news and are threatening to take to court any government that allows the introduction of such vehicles.
Women Against International Societal Trauma spokesperson Flick Douthwaite dismissed the invention as "yet another attempt by an already male dominated industry to further entrench their stranglehold. I presume that the characteristics and values embedded in the software will be male orientated."
Strangely enough, Male Chauvinist leader Brian Taylor had some sympathy with the latter's viewpoint. Taylor condemned the invention as being divisive in the respect that "unless there is a device built into the car that can apply make up , it clearly would be beyond the ability of most women drivers to use such a means of transport".
The news has also enraged the Association of British Taxi Drivers whose chairman Allan Cameron claimed the development would breach taxi drivers human rights as it would "severely weaken taxi drivers' ability to carry out their decades old tradition of parking on double yellow lines or on street corners".
