"It's how a car is made, not how it's driven, that determines how many jobs there are."
They're being made by automated machinery, of course.
My other thought, about self driving vehicles is this, No more cop cars. No need for them, not really. Vehicles with police personnel in them would have right of way, just like now, it's just that all the other vehicles on the road would know this and would adjust the flow of traffic to give them precedence over the regular flow. And after a quick look at years of statistics, there's no way in hell they would ever let the cops have manual control, hell there won't BE any manual controls, that'd be crazy. There will, of course, be the traditional cop car paint schemes, flashing light and sirens, these will only be sop to their manhood, ( Not truly serving any other real purpose.) to make them feel a little bit better about not being allowed to manually drive their former penis substitutes. I think it'll be great.
