Nope. I don't trust them.

Nope, even if they worked as well as me. Or better. I have no desire to chop off yet another near effortless physical activity. Im already lazy enough. Driving requires almost no effort in the first place!! Its like sitting on a couch while a huge machine brings you anywhere you want, with power steering and all that good stuff.

Thats just my personal opinion. Moving on... I dont really see the point or reason for them. What is the point? I dont really get them. I know, im bracing myself for the old "they may be more safe, less accidents" speech. But come on..... Most people dont care about those safety statistics and betterment of the world.

There has to be something other then those "safety" concerns that people want them for. Either that or im dead wrong! Lol. Ill accept any blowback

I thought it would be kind of cool to just sit in the back and relax until I heard of one crashing into a bus ! I think we're still a few years away from those being totally safe !

No. I refuse to let a machine make decisions for me that could mean life or death. With that said there are some drivers out there I think need a self driving car because their driving skills leave a lot to be desired. I think it would be great to add mobilty to people who have physical handicaps that don't allow them to drive. Like quadriplegics or the blind.

Once the Technology is refined enough . . I would go . . . To SLEEP.

Long trips would only be a fleeting moment of Consciousness, and a long stretch after a good nap.

No---I don't need any assistance to run into a bus because some software "decided" the bus would most likely let me make that right turn.

Personally, I am not convinced that any machine/software combination will ever produce in the long run more desirable outcomes than that of specific human judgment tailored to the moment, no matter how flawed the latter may be.

Given the interaction of the psyche/soma in humans, I don't think that's possible.

(This is simply an opinion, based on my particular understanding of reality at this time---So it's only subject to "logical analysis" in the same sense that a statement that I prefer dogs to cats might be.)

I'm looking forward to them.  I live 3.5 miles out of town, and am pushing 71.  One of these days my driving days will be over and a self-driving car would enable me to remain where I am.
