    It might change the situation of drunk driving. Could this save lives?

    I was on a Darpa Grand Challenge team and I met Levandowski's crew at the semi-final and talked to them about their entry - the robotic motorcycle Ghostrider. Extremely sharp but laid back. Most of the teams had nice lay outs and coiffed, scripted talks for the press roaming around. When I visited the Ghostrider bay they were all greased up from eating BBQ chicken wings w/ one guy cold asleep.
