Greetings,

I can't see an option here which lined up with my perspective which could be described simply as "Functional, not to be feared".

That little steering wheel near the tip of each finger is used to drive nails.
Driving is painful.

Driving might get eliminated one day in the future. Considering all the automation going on and that computer-self-driving cars and trucks have already been made; there could be a time in the future when you order a car to come pick you up, you get in, slide your debit/credit card and it takes you where you want to go. You get out and the car (driver-less) goes to pick up the next person. Even car ownership could become non-existent as everyone just pays for the actual miles taken in the driver-less taxis.

Once the technology gets perfected, it would greatly reduce the number of fatalities on the roads, as presumably there would be very little "driver" error since it's a computer.

In many cities today, there already exists driver-less monorails taking people to various destinations around the city.

It would of course increase the potential for assassinations to be conducted via hacking of the car's controls. Even without autonomous vehicles, this hacking with murderous intent is not only technically possible, but may have already happened.

Yeah, I've heard that is possible; such are the drawbacks of some of this automated technology. Speaking of assassinations and automation, this would be hard to stop in the wrong hands:

And there are no 'right' hands.

Cars are noisy, smelly and dangerous, and the sooner we get rid of them the better. :tongue:

An Opinion on a Matter of Public Safety

“Air Bag” sounds like eminent sickness
This device should not be permitted
General Motors was right to suppress it
and wrong to have relented
and Nader should stay out of it.

Driving is based on alertness
whether that be loose or tight
Those who let their attention wander
must not be encouraged to survive
by a bag full of air.
