So we can make a seat that can tell if my butt's in it and my belt isn't snapped. We can create a car that can tell what other cars around it are doing, and steer and/or brake accordingly. We can build a car that will parallel park itself (or so I'm told - never saw one). We can devise all sorts of vehicles that adjust the number of cylinders to us, advance or retard the timing as needed, adjust traction and ride height automatically, and tell us, "in 1/4, turn left onto Sycamore Drive - your destination is on the left".
Why the heck can't we engineer something that tells semis that they are in a no-engine-braking-zone and disable it until they are safely away from my bedroom window and the hammock in my backyard?
