This robot aims to make traffic stops safer for everyone
Designed to make traffic stops safer, the prototype allows police officers to interact with a driver from their car. It even deploys spikes to prevent the driver from speeding away.

My thoughts exactly. I was just amazed how efficiently the little guy did the job. You can't even get away because he puts down spikes.

If a passing motorist hits Robo-Cop will they be charged with vehicular homicide? jrSmiley_87_smiley_image.gif

What happens if you get a "Smartass" cop that has a tickle in his funny bone that day, and deploys your Spike Strips for giggles ?

As we all know, there are bad Cops out there. 

Stay Safe !

Good point!

I am assuming that there is some sort of video record included with the device. If so, it might make things better not worse.

I just don't like not having control of what "I" do. I'm nervous sitting in the passenger seat when someone else is driving. LOL ! jrSmiley_19_smiley_image.gif

Too much left in the hands of technology, but then again I still use a flip phone (begrudgingly):)
