I wonder what everyone will do with their driveways and garages once no one needs to own cars?
Build bigger houses.
A life spent making mistakes is not only more memorable, but more useful than a life spent doing nothing.

What's the point in learning how to drive??

Heck ... no point in picking up the knife and fork for dinner. Sit there ... and you will be fed.

Stupid technology makes people even lazier.
Stress is caused by NOT fishing enough.
JDM ONLY! No North American CRAP!
Megabass, Imakatsu, Jackall, GanCraft, OSP, EverGreen, YGK, Toray, Sunline, Nories, Shimano, Daiwa RULES!
EVA Air Rocks ... Air Canada SUCKS!

This is one thing that's not happening. Too many variables.

Driverless cars will mean the end of parking and parking lots. Imagine how much valuable real estate will be freed up.

Expect a very jarring ride downtown as pedestrians ignore all traffic devices, knowing that autonomous cars will stop for them.

Can't wait for the day a driverless car kills its 5-year-old occupant in order to save two jaywalkers who happen to be sex offenders, or kills a dozen women and children to save one occupant... Who also happens to be a sex offender.

Look at how powerful the NRA is, then try to imagine how many more car enthusiasts and transportation workers there are compared to gun owners, not to mention the almighty 'TERK ER JERBS' angle that the transpo workers will bring to the table.

The biggest reason for self driving cars is safety, the number of people killed or severely injured by car accidents is significant, as much as a a few wars combined!

I'm sure you've said it once before while driving, some people aren't meant to be on the roads, clueless drivers, distracted drivers, drunk drivers and senior citizens. With trucking goods, imagine zero accidents, 24/7 movement of goods and materials.

I believe the future will have both, if you wish to drive because you enjoy driving and are a good driver, you can! For everyone else, self driving cars are the answer.

It's happening and will happen. Researchers are solving the variables, it will take time but it can be done! What's really challenging is getting it to work in Canada, with our wide range of weather conditions.
