I bet there are a ton of people who would. I bet there are also a ton of people who love driving, mistrust computers and don't want to lose their jobs. As I say, lots to consider, not that we plebs will have any choice in the matter. It's happening, as sure as night follows day or Chula will drop in another "unprecedented" post about Trump wherever he can.

They do. Do you not think that once driverless cars become the norm (and they're talking about three or four years) that manufacturers will stop making driver ones? They also won't be allowed; the roads will be for autonomous cars only I would think.

Neither do I. I'm thinking though of taking a taxi and finding there is no driver. I think I might initially be a little freaked out by that. Then, driving along a road which is populated by entirely driverless vehicles. I mean, it's the future: there's nothing can stop it. It just seems such a leap, that is happening in my lifetime and which I admit I did not anticipate was so close, that I'm a little lightheaded thinking about it. I also know many taxi and truck drivers and can't help feeling for the jobs that are going to be lost. And it's not like they can pick up jobs driving elsewhere, cos once this gets a hold it's all over for that sort of skill set.

There are definitely advantages; I'm just not sure if the one outweighs the other, as I said.

To them I say: tough titties.
