Then there's no need for any of this shite.
Simples.
..only problem with that is when the "stupids" do eventually take themselves out they tend to take other people with them.

a - this currently (as proposed) will not apply to bikes (though there are discussions on the viability of it on bikes, it's unlikely to be successful for a heap of reasons)

b - It would/will only apply to new vehicles from a set date (probably about two years after introduction)

c - Given the current state of GPS and/or sign recognition, it's likely to be bells and lights, rather than hitting the brakes (plenty of 50kmh off-ramps on the M50 get detected by modern cages while you're happily sitting just shy of the ton

Much ado about nothing (yet)

The lights will remain on despite there being nobody home till the interwebs are back up and running....simples as dat. I'm going to use a defibrillator on my two zombies the next time they try to use Google to help them debate with me. Seriously its not that bad, ooh no, its fucking worse than that....they are totally comatose without the net.

Already a thing on many cages and it's getting better every year. You can switch it off and on, but it will maintain set speed, distance and brake all the way to a standstill.
More automation will lead to vehicles talking to each other and able to interact together, allowing even closer distances and unnecessary braking on motorways. How bikes fit into this I'm not sure, but BMW either have or are planning on a system for bikes.
