But haven’t they been building “driverless cars” for decades now?

Sorry. Couldn’t resist.

Here’s the actual article, which turns out not to be about overstocked car lots and steadily declining market share but rather about “cars that drive themselves–even parking at their destination.”

Not gonna happen in this country for a long, long time. Can you imagine the lawsuits?

    But wouldn’t drunk celebrities in Calf. be snapping these cars up as soon as they came out? For some reason they don’t get somebody to drive them around, so maybe they need this.

    I’ve always wondered why so few celebrities seem to have drivers.

    I kind of like the idea of making cars like old time carriages with the seats all facing in for interaction rather than everyone facing the same way. I guess most people don’t like facing backwards in a car, although it is safer.

    Of course, there is also the problem of preventing driverless cars from delivering bombs without the need for a suicide bomber.

    I used to go to work in a vehicle I didn’t have to drive. It’s called a bus!

    Having a few million more carless drivers would go a long way to solving some of the problems frequently discussed on this site.
