Robocop to snoop on motorists, Part II:
Hub Blog is flattered and honored that Carpundit
has asked me an auto ethical question. I guess the best way to answer his question is to fall back on his own reasoned past replies (here
) in which he showed a great respect for the law and do-no-harm to cars. ... Of course, if I owned a car, the inverse would be true, as my previous post suggests. ... FYI: I ask a lot of car questions precisely because I've freely chosen not to own a car. You see, I was traumatized after I had to dump my first beauty, a 1977 Plymouth Volare station wagon, only to find out later that I was the victim of an inept mechanic. I could have driven my Volare for tens of thousands of miles more. My relationship with cars has never been the same.Update
-- Sniff, sniff. My Plymouth Volare station wagon
also had fake wood paneling. ... I'm getting very emotional now. I've opened up old wounds. ... "Your heart has given me wings"
