Maybe for local trips, but if you are commuting daily and on the road for 1-2 hours a day, wouldn't you rather do something else? I would be happy to catch up on my sleep or do other tasks and let the vehicle drive itself. I hate the waste of time in commuting and would see this as an opportunity to regain it.

The purpose of knowing driving skills is to match the technology we are using (so we don't die or kill something else). As the technology changes, so will the skills we need. Is it a loss? Or is it freedom to do other things. Personally I think if if you think it's a loss, you are simply embracing a "can do " self sufficient mentality for ego's sake.

Only through hard work and perseverance can one truly suffer.
