"More than 20 Austin police officers on Wednesday are scouring Interstate 35 in North Austin for distracted drivers.
"Members of the Austin Police Department’s Highway Enforcement Unit boarded a city bus around 7 a.m. near Interstate 35 and Parmer Lane and took to the highway to act as spotters for a swarm of officers on motorcycles to catch drivers using cell phones on the road."
A whole lot of manpower in Austin would be eliminated in a world of self-driving cars. (Side note: When did Austin transform from a place a for hippies to a police state?)
