The US Department of Transportation just released guidelines for compliance and safety testing of automated vehicles. My son is part of the last generation of North Americans who will need to learn to drive.

It's almost like Facebook doesn't realize that an ad-blocker to get around anti-ad-blocker technology could be built.
