Isn’t technology wonderful

Volvo shows off new its new ‘self parking’ prototype. Yerss, it looks like a wonderful idea, but I have my reservations. For example; will it buy your pay and display tickets for you, and ring your mobile phone fifteen minutes before it expires so you don’t give the Parking Enforcers writers cramp? No? Didn’t think so. Will it refuse to halt on a parking restriction even if you are the worst of cashpoint cripples? Nah.

Will the new Citroen C4 find you a free parking space even in central London? Could it run GPS checks on the location of all the Parking Enforcers in the area, thus giving you a chance to get your morning paper while you’re blocking a narrow street on double yellows? Still a prototype? Thought so. So shall it remain.

Looks like I’m still going to be in a job this time next year then.

Exasperated expatriate expostulations all the way from British Columbia, Canada. As if anyone really cared. Oh, I also watch Icelandic Volcanoes and seismic activity. Don't ask me why.
