    I find it interesting. Most folks can't drive safely or even pay attention to the road. I'd gladly accept auto driving cars, once proven safe over texting manual drivers. I'll be safer on my motorcycle because of it. Now if the government mandates the use rather than consumer choice, I'd be against it.

    Awww great.

    A future with more robots. Juuuuuust what we needed. Less jobs, more machines.

    Just gonna turn everywhere into more Flints and Detroits. Expect a boom in drug dealing, gangs, petty crime, and prostitution soon.... unless we get a welfare state. THEN, expect skyrocketing alcoholism and the usual associated brawling, vandalism, and domestic violence everywhere instead, Euro-style.
