    Advertisements
    Watching the report on CBS This Moring on fully autonomous cars ---- Good idea or bad idea? Would you want one?

    Meh. I wouldn't get one because I enjoy driving. Not sure if they're good or bad yet.

    The idea of that really scares me. As much as I hate driving I don't think I'd trust the car.

    This. But at the same time, I don't trust most drivers.

    I don't hate driving on the highway. It's kind of fun. But I hate driving around in cities especially if I'm not familiar with it.

    That thought doesn't appeal to me at all. I am not a huge fan of driving but I also don't trust an "automatic" car to not have something go wrong. I do not like the idea of having no control at all of my own vehicle plus no control of others. At least currently I can have control over my own vehicle and that isn't a variable I care to give up.

    Nope. That idea scares me. There is way too much that could go wrong.

    I love the idea of everyone else having automated cars. Much safer if all have them, but if some people have them and others dont, that ends up being more dangerous to the people with them because the bad drivers that still dont have automated cars can hit them and the people in the automated cars could do nothing to try to evade. But if all have them, it would be much safer. Computer fuck ups are farrrrrrrr less common than human error. Humans really err a LOT.

    Plus then you can go to the bar and drive home since you arent driving. It essentially eliminates drinking and driving, which is safer for all. Include texting/cell phone use/irritating kids and all that in there- again, humans are flawed, computers, much less so, and less prone to distraction.

    I'd like it. I had the "oh my gosh, no I wouldn't trust it" response but after having DH explain how things actually work (this goes for everything in the universe ) I like the idea and I hate driving unless the roads are empty so I'd love it for regular driving.
