There is an existing interface for controlling a car and wandering minds are handled in that system by keeping a hand on the steering wheel.  This might have uses for a paraplegic but not I think on a high speed weighty vehicle.  If anything drivers licenses should be much harder to get than they are now.  Clearly many people now driving are psychologically unsuited to operate such potentially dangerous vehicles.  Other countries use rigorous testing to award licenses.
