Would you have a driverless car?
The technology is here, possibly not even that far from becoming mainstream offers.
But, money aside, would you ever consider one? I believe you'd still be able to switch to human control.
The immediate reaction is to say "NO-o-o-o!!!!! But are there any possible benefits? Fewer accidents, probably at lower speeds if there are and less likely to be "your" fault. Lower insurance - especially for younger drivers? Maybe a surcharge or telematic system would add to your premium when it goes back under human control? Less stressful commuting or lower risk of tiredness on very long journeys?
Interesting possibilities. I think there are some journeys I'd be happy to snooze or read until I get home.
Nostalgia isn't what it used to be.
