The key to your survival and that of all of us on the road lies
in this phrase. The Audi, ABS included, is IMHO a marvel of engineering
but orders of magnitude poorer in design that the human sensors, feedback
loops and effectors which run the Audi. Without these the best car
design in the Universe is no protection. Do all drivers use `the corner
or the eye' not to mention those in the back of the head, as I was taught
to do by my mother's nagging? I think not, but you did/do and will
survive those who don't.
