Why driverless cars will never happen

Why driverless cars will never happen

Oh sure, you'll see driverless cars on the road. A few here and a few there. But they will never happen in a major commercial way for a very simple reason: people love to drive.

I do. It's a skill that took me a while to learn. I'm proud of my skill and I enjoy using it. A driverless car takes that pleasure away. Can you imagine being in a car that obeys all traffic laws including speed limits. It would be incredibly infuriating and amazingly boring.

Plus, on todays aggressive roads it would be outright dangerous. Go ahead, plod along at the 30 mph speed limit while 18 wheeler trucks swerve past you at 55 mph. No thanks.

But there's one good thing about driverless cars - as more come on the road they will put my driving skills to the test in order to avoid them!

Driverless cars are putting me to sleep. Wake me up when we have driverless trains and driverless subways.

You gotta love the driverless car industry - a brilliant solution to a problem that doesn't exist.
