Never underestimate how more stories of decapitated people will decrease enthusiasm.

I for one cant wait for driverless cars. You can sleep on the way to work or drink and drive without getting a DUI.

They're nowhere close to getting this to work. The demo can't even get to the demo zone by itself. Then when it gets there, traffic is light and the weather is perfect. Ooh, and it's like 11am, not 11pm.

We're 50 years from being able to ride a self-driving car in the cold rain in Pittsburgh at 11pm in February.

I was in Phoenix in July and the Waymo vehicles are all over the place. I think it's getting close. Give it another 10 years or so.

50. They're testing in the desert southwest because they have no hope of getting this stuff to work in foul weather until affordable sensory equipment exists that can function while covered in splattered mud and snow.

I mean, go up to one of those Waymo cars and wing some pizza sauce at it. They're done.

Lol, this basically explains why Uber exists.

I can't help but wonder what implications this may have for autonomous vehicles. If this begins to spread to other states, will leaders of Uber/Lyft see this as an incentive to invest more into making autonomous ride sharing happen sooner as it will eliminate the need to cover "employees"? Then again, maybe there is still enough of a gap between what we have now and a reality where driverless cars are everywhere.
