Driverless Car

Posted by

The car that is making a right turn is a driverless car. I took a cab across town. The cab driver was telling me some cars are being tested, there is a person in the driver seat and a person who is driving shotgun.

We have yet to see whether having no driver makes the car safer. Thought provoking for sure.

How can we know it is driverless if someone is in the driver's seat? I must admit I am a bit wary about these.

@Ruthiebear: While they are testing these cars, they need a live person to take charge if something happens. I don't like the idea of driverless cars myself.

For now, I'm not sure this is a good idea.
