Most annoying drivers
#31
funny thing is the whole driving becoming more dangerous thing coupled with automated cars was predicted by issac asimov back in the early 1950's.

in one of his short stories he briefly mentions that the us government and eventually the world had made manual driving illegal due to the fact that having cars drive themselves (in that particular case using positronic brains), created a decrease in car related accidents by over 80%.

honestly I could see that happening in the next 20 years.

Agreed. 

I think the main obstacle towards better development and adoption of autonomous driving technology right now is that if there is an accident, someone ends up getting sued into the dirt over it in court. And I imagine that's a big part of what's deterring some people right now.

that's exactly why I think that asimov made it a government thing so that automated cars become the domain of the transportation department, like highways and passenger rail and such, so if something goes wrong it falls under those rules.

That would definitely help protect the companies that develop it. I do think that as it stands now, there is still a lot of public discomfort with the idea (despite the fact that autonomous techonology, I think, has become safer than actual human drivers nowadays).

The future is coming, albeit a little slower than thought... Finna

@darth: Ironically over at o'riley autoparts you can get a "flux capacitor" for $130 Wink
