Ridiculous Study of the Week: Driverless Cars and Sex

And here we go:

Self-driving vehicles will lead to a rise in car sex, according to a new study.  People will be more likely to eat, sleep and engage in on-the-road hanky-panky when robot cars become the new normal, according to research published in the most recent issue of the journal Annals of Tourism Research.

Now this is top notch research.   I can see more conclusions like this in the future.  Here are some of mine:

  • Less back seat drivers causing fights
  • Less fights between husband and wives over directions
  • Less traffic tickets

Any others?

    Doug – How could you have missed this ridiculous study funded by NIH and published in the BMJ last week? Important stuff with significant conclusions.: “Golfing is common among US male physicians, particularly those in the surgical subspecialties. The association between golfing and patient outcomes, costs of care, and physician wellbeing remain unknown.”
