Money and other comonities will most likely be non existent in the far future. As machine slowly fills every human spot in society. Why would bushiness owners want to pay a weekly salary to a human, when they can cover a machine that will do the same job without ever skipping a beat for the same expenses. The future is automated, and who knows what lies in store.
Actually, this probably would increase productivity..... the people who are commuting to work by car today can work on the way to work or just catch up on sleep. Futhermore, there will be reduce deaths and injuries which cost economies human capital, money in medical costs, and propery damage. Plus reduce traffic and slipstreaming mean less gas wasted.
Chauffeur may lose their jobs.... but the net gain is MASSIVE. Imagining having 6-14 hrs of more free time a week... that's basically a whole day!!!!!

Take away people who drive their cars like an idiot. Driving is not a right its a privilege and make the privilege harder to get.
People say robots are safer than humans, what happens in a malfunction on the highway with a car and non of the rest can stop?
2-wheel bikes have to be motion to stay self-righted.... why bother?
If you make it harder for people to drive, you better have a compariable subsitute.
Why wouldn't the rest of the cars be able to stop? A computer reaction time is a few microseconds... it is as fast or faster than humans. Furthermore, cars can alert each other in the entire area regardless of visability or obstructions.... not just what is immediately in front of the car.
