Are New Car Technologies Making People Bad Drivers?

So, I was just thinking about how cars have changed over the years and I realized that the entire driving dynamic is insanely different than 20 years ago. We have ABS, traction control, stability control, high tech tires...

I could go on and on, but back in the day we had none of this! People had to learn to truly drive! They knew what it feels like to have the back end slide out or have horrible stopping distance in the rain. People had to know what there car would do in every situation and I think it produced better drivers. Now, I also think the driving test is a joke and doesn't give you much insight into what real world driving is going to be, but that is a discussion for another day.
