The Never-Ending Surge of In-Car 'Safety' Technology

Which I may have mentioned in one or two previous posts . . .

. . . May have reached a new level (depth?) in the newly-released Vauxhall Insignia, which features:

Select the Front Camera System and new Insignia will read the speed limit signs and display a reminder on the facia, helping you keep safe and legal. Leave your lane without a signal, and it can also warn you - just in case you're tired or simply not paying attention.

Oh, that's OK then, you don't need to be awake or paying attention any longer!

Or do they mean you can sleep through speed limit signs but stay awake for everything else . . . ? And doesn't that suggest that you're likely to be ignoring the speed limts while you sleep? Or perhaps they wan't you to wake up enough to speed up if you're below the limit?
