When I hear of some funky, new idea which is going to revolutionise the world of transport - or anything else for that matter - I ask myself one question: who’s doing it?  Because, if it’s a finger-on-the-pulse, go-getting, business, the chances are that it will work and if it is something that’s being developed in an extortion-funded university it probably won’t.  Universities are, as Brian would have it (and me, for that matter) places where “...old ideas go to die.”

So what am I to make of this crash-proof car idea?

The engineers, working with DaimlerChrysler…

Sounds good.

...Glasgow University’s Centre for Systems and Control…

Sounds bad.

What is a girl to do?
