Re: The whole driverless car thing

Driverless cars aren't a solution to fatalities. Well, they will need to be for people to accept them (my 90% decline in accident rate compared to humans in the same conditions standard) but for me the reason I'd want one isn't due to safety. These are the solutions as far as I'm considered:

1) I can take 1000 mile car trips instead of dealing with the nightmare flying has become if I can sleep in the car, surf the web, watch TV etc. instead of sitting behind the wheel having to pay attention

2) I can go out, get drunk, and have my car take me home instead of dealing with the hassle of taxis/lyft

3) In a few decades when I might be too old to drive safely, I won't have to depend on others for my mobility
