They can't build a computer or smartphone that won't crash, how long until this is dependable? Can't wait for the first crash on my car's navigational computer. Will the car come screeching to a halt in traffic?

good, then my car can buy its own liability insurance, because now i am just a passenger

-- "good, then my car can buy its own liability insurance, because now i am just a passenger" --

When we have driverless cars, who will back-seat drivers argue with?

Won't we miss seeing people behind the wheel yakking on the phone, texting, reading newspapers or maps, putting on makeup, spilling their cappuccinos on the brand-new Armani they wore to close the deal or impress the jury, or stuffing their faces with fast food and spilling sauce all over themselves?

Come to think of it, I see cars on the street now that I could swear are "driverless."

The sooner the better.

That means they will finally;
slow down,
obey the speed limits,
won't try to beat the red lights,
will come to a complete stop,
won't tail gate,
won't cut you off,
and will actually USE the turn signals!

Just like with guns and sharp objects,
Car don't kill people, people kill people.
