    All for advances in technology but this isn't one of them.

    I'm cool with self-driving cars. Selfless? Well that would be kind of strange.

    I'm not against it but I wouldn't use it

    I live driving big cars and being in control

    Can't depend on that kind of technology

    It will take a while, I think the estimates that they'll be here in the next couple of years are too ambitious.

    But they are test cars. That's all. No one likes the idea of being in a car that's easy to hijack + people will try to steal the cars. Maybe in another world but we live on Earth.

    There's an article that came out today about how companies still haven't perfected those "what if" moments such as if you see a group of 10 people and could KILL 1 but save the other 9 would you do it? Or would you try to save them all and possibly kill or injure more. My elevator glitches when people press too many buttons because it's thinking too much. That's the current issue with the cars. When they perfect that, maybe people will consider it.
