The era of escaping from the world by taking a drive are ending. That's because upcoming electronic safety systems will link cars to each other and the roadside, says AutoBeat Group Publisher Bill Hampton.

Among other things, this technology will alert you to traffic hazards before you reach them, spot pedestrians before they step into your path and warn of possible collisions with cross-traffic vehicles you can't even see.

But delivering such enhanced safety also will mark the end of driving as a solo activity, Hampton adds.
