When taking about all these driverless vehicles just keep in mind that sixty years ago all the talk was about everyone owning a helicopter and using them as if they were cars to go to work and the store.

Do you really want to be driving down a busy street surrounded by hundreds of driverless vehicles. I thought not. Just because something is technically possible doesn’t mean it will be preferred.
