Don't be daft Feelings - it's raining today. If you were a hack would you go to Abingdon or just post a library pic of an ambulance on the Cowley Rd, the same one used for any story involving an ambulance.

What a daft headline though - cars don't drive themselves, they are driven by people who in many cases are in no way suited to the task. I'll be told off for making assumptions in this case so I won't.
