Parallels in Failures

Parallel parking's "out" in two of three local jurisdictions,
The same skills declared measured by a reverse two point turn around,
With much more room to maneuver, yeah, right!
So another reason for dropping it from the exam must be found.

Lines too long - eliminate repeat test takers,
In this "click, click" world, they simply can't come back ... and wait,
To these kids who basically got trophies for tinkling,
Helicopter parents didn't train them for the high failure rate.

Isn't licensure supposed to be about road readiness and protecting the public?
And not how little service the government can provide and how quickly it can start to collect a fee...
...For that, there are police traps and speed cameras and parking tickets!
Why add to the many already horrible drivers in the not so rural DMV?

Is it a coincidence that Maryland became the latest to make this "revision,"
Just after the "double taxation" Supreme Court ruling went against the state?
Make some money up - or it is a prescient grab based on thinking...
...That a total tech takeover of cars will sooner rather than later be an accomplished fate?

Right on cue, on about seventy miles of obstacle course highway in Northern Virginia,
Within the upcoming year, there will be self driving vehicles,
Humans behind the wheel, for backup...for now,
What happens if he or she gets green around the gills?

Because with breaches, glitches, and CRASHES, computers are fallible,
An automobile is analog, a dangerous machine to be operated with care,
The population's trending urban, perhaps "the Forgoing Fifteen" are the flunkies...
... In making "achievement" too easy and reliance on artificial intelligence standard fare.
