    I think it's a good idea - ultimately if it were widely accepted, I bet that there would be a shit-ton fewer accidental deaths. Even if there are a few glitches/hacking/whatever, is that really any different from some drunk idiot ramming into you head on at full speed? I think a lot of people have an illusion of total control when driving which can be very misleading. Excellent defensive drivers are killed on the road every day, through no fault of their own.

    I'm not in favour of eliminating (optional) manual control though, at least not in the foreseeable future.

    sorry @KDude, was using you as a one-man testing ground. yes i see your point and i can see how a lot of SPs might have trouble giving up driving.

    in the long run i don't think it will matter much though. the prevalence of any technology that provides us with free time will bring about the prevalence of ways to use that time, whether it's pressure from work & education, family & friends, or just the availability of alternative activities.

    and with self-driving cars, the car eventually becomes a private waiting room.

    I wont ever give up driving.

    As a car enthusiast I'll take the option, but there must always be the option for manual control.

    I have a hard enough time with the loss of control by using cruise control. I do understand the potential safety reasons and other advantages to automated driving but it would take me awhile to stop driving manually.
    I like to rock n' roll all night and *part* of every day. I usually have errands... I can only rock from like 1-3.

    I agree with @Lark in that I'd be very worried about the level of artificial intelligence being insufficient so that I end up being killed. However, I agree with @jontherobot in that this will eventually be a realty and the majority of cars will operate this way and eventually the AI will prove to be better drivers than humans.

    Until then, I'll stick to driving until there are extensive tests to prove the safety and reliability of AI ran vehicles.
