Vint Cerf, when he gave a presentation where I work, mentioned that the latest version of Google's self-driving car didn't even have a steering wheel.
Allow me to present my two arguments that they're complete idiots:
1) It's now a few years from now, and half the self-driving cars on the road are 5-10 years old. Many, if not most, were purchased used.
How do you feel knowing that many of those cars' owners have never seen a safety recall, much less had one done?
2) Pull 11705 Dewey Rd, Wheaton-Glenmont, MD up in google maps, go to street view, and rotate to the left, to look at the road. One two
parking lane, directions, no lane markings, and, oh, yes, the bus uses this road, and if I drive to work, I usually drive on this
road. Tell me a self driving car's going to handle it...
Oh, and argument 3: I can go most places without driving. I use this thing called "public transit". If I really, really need to get somewhere faster, there are these things called "taxis". Consider how much a self-driving car costs, and how long you'll own it, and how much maintenance will cost, and then how much you'd spend on public transit, with or without taxis, and tell me which is a *hell* of a lot more money.
