Mine in USA would say, "Left lane for passing!".

I'm suspicious this technology not only is a deeper invasion of privacy, but also an excuse for drivers to do so, less focused on their own safety and others using roadways... and put an end to the annoying distractions inherent in driving, allowing drivers to focus on phoning and texting while operating a motor vehicle.

This is all nice and all, but there's still the matter of all the older vehicles not utilising this technology will still allow people to get into crashes, or people who just ignore the warning alerts...

Excited about this. Decentralized, swarm intelligence on the road.

I saw a promo on this a few months ago and one of the features was automatic braking for a car about to crash. The info is transmitted to the offending car through the traffic control light system. I don't see a conspiracy behind every shrub, but I thought, geeze what a great way for the government to bring traffic to a dead stop at the flick of a switch. I would opt for a manual override system to ensure I had complete control of my property and mobility, just in case.

Black hat hackers' paradise.

That should make it easier for "drivers" to talk, text, read, eat, shave, put on make-up and yell at the kids standing in the back.
