Wild Card's description 
An automated guidance system for vehicles revolutionises traffic. People agree to less driving pleasure and freedom to introduce this new system that completely avoids fatalities and is much more efficient as it avoids traffic jams and enables the "driver" to do other tasks during a daily commute, e.g. shaving, reading the newspaper etc..
