    Self driving. The US Food truck was at fault.

    I'm not sure I'm comfortable getting in a driverless vehicle, regardless.

    Yup, if it had a driver, I'm sure evasive action could have been taken.

    It will eventually be the future for some transportation needs. But I'm not quite ready for it just yet. Maybe a train on tracks with all the bells and whistles for controls would be one I might....might get on now.

    Sometime in the future teenagers will get their jollies causing gridlock in major cities by "brake checking" driverless cars or putting a cardboard cutout of a person in the street.

    I feel they should have put the monorail right over the top of Las Vegas Blvd but they didn't want to ruin the view. It's a huge flop hidden behind the casinos like it is now.

    As long as there are hackers, I can't have complete trust in anything controlled only by computers.

    And that includes vehicles for me. Remotely controlled bells and whistles are definitely a convenience...until you are not the one controlling them or you hit the wrong key.
