I am having trouble getting going on this problem and I'm hoping someone can help get me started.

I have no idea how to do solve this. Originally I thought about using Heisenberg's uncertainty principle and setting delta x = 1 m. Yet I don't see how the uncertainty in that direction is related to a perpendicular velocity that the car would be approaching in. Perhaps I just don't understand the concept fully, as I don't see why there is a minimum speed I must be going to be sure I won't hit the side.

I have a similar problem to tempst33k's .. this time with electrons. It seems the wavelength (uncertainty?) is in the direction of travel and my interest is in the 'size' normal to the direction of travel.

A comment on whether the 'uncertainty' and wavelength are or are not the same would be most appreciated.
