You're all too skeptical of super-duper self-driving cars, apparently

Re: I'm in charge of me

The way to mandate robot car usage is likely, I think, to be the same way they're controlling traffic in city centres; first a high access charge for non-robot cars and then eventually a ban on them. Roads which are 'harder' for the robots will get controlled last and remain available for those who actually *like* driving.

As an aside, and a response to the point upthread about a million cars all shining lights at each other... I've wondered - on no evidence whatsoever - whether current methods that use all sorts of sensors to try and build up a picture of the surrounding environment are necessarily the best way to do it, and whether perhaps we might observe that people manage to control a car with nothing more than two eyes, mostly facing forwards only?
