I don't trust it keeping pedestrians safe because there's blind spots on cameras and software bugs happen.

Also muted driving experience means you should get the most comfy POS car possible (with cushy tires) and enjoy the ride instead of getting a performance car like a WRX, Miata, S2000, or any BMW M series.

This is an easy assumption, but the reality is that the number of driver-error accidents are staggering.

Just the other day I walked out side a store, and waited for my wife for a few minutes. As I watched, for just over 5 minutes, I noticed 2 near-misses, 9 close calls, and over half the people driving were clearly distracted (All of the close calls/near-misses) were distracted, on a phone, or looking down (clearly texting) or other. Mind you, this is in a hands-free only state with anti-texting laws.

If I'm on my sportbike, it is rediculous. I have to lie to my wife about how many times I've nearly been struck by some idiot that can't notice a bright yellow, loud motorcycle in the other lane, or coming down the street. It irritates me just to think about it. And it's crazy how much my reaction and defensive riding have developed because of it.

If driver-less cars cuts this down, I'm all for it. And if there happens to be an accident here or there, hey, that's what lawsuits are for.

So many people are poor drivers.

My dads old car got rear ended going 35 by some 41yo woman that was texting on their phone not paying attention to speed and didn't see a red light coming up. Then you have to deal with their crappy insurance because half the time those crappy drivers have the worst insurance, though luckily for him the trunk still worked and only slight visual damage.

Can't wait for the day every car is forced to have some type of ID chip that broadcasts info to other nearby cars, would be a much safer place.


Computer controlled car can't fear anything... which is good, but I can say that because of fear I am a better driver because I don't want to die or injure the people around me. I would drive off a cliff before that could happen.

I still don't like this idea, but if you guys really want it ... ok you can have it.
