Are you sure your disc drive has stopped rotating, or are you just ignoring the messages?

Yes, well, funny you should mention driving a car. I once found myself following a guy driving a bit slower than you would expect on the freeway, so I overtook him. We got off at the same exit, and as I was waiting to turn on to the road to my office, he came up behind me and failed to stop before impacting my car in a fairly firm way, but not enough to cause more than a small dent. He turned out to be a flabby desk droid who turned white at the thought of getting the insurance companies involved and offered to settle with me for cash. This, obviously, was not his first recent fender bender. I took the cash.

So here is someone who, whilst being able to drive, certainly had problems with comprehending the basic controls of his car. For some people, even the simplest thing may be beyond their ability to cope.
