It's going to be funny looking back on this thread in 10 years and see the people that resisted the driverless car revolution. Most people already don't want to drive as is evidenced by the numerous amounts of people texting while driving. Plus, do that many people actually like driving their morning commute looking at red lights in front of them and hitting every red light too?
IMO, if we just made stop lights more intelligent, we could cut emissions A LOT. There's usually a 20% difference between fuel efficiency on highways compared to the city just because of all the unnecessary braking.
Think of how much you'll save on your insurance costs by letting the car drive itself and putting the risk on the software developers for any accidents? How much more space would you have in your house if "your" car would just drop you off and drive away to recharge overnight? What guy wouldn't want that large man cave where their car used to be?
