My original sentence should have ended with "that a human could respond to better." Does that settle the contradiction for you and JarodRussell?
As far as the wording goes, yes. Can't speak for Jarod, though.

gturner has some interesting answers to your question, too.

But I think ultimately Lindley pegged it. Driver-assist technology is okay as far as it goes. However, we can't let it take the place of driver responsibility ... short of revolutionary changes in computer capabilities, vehicle capabilities, and human expectations.

Until then, the driver must have the same responsibility he's always had, regardless of how much automation is in place. And people need to understand that.
