I’m Old-Fashioned, But Cars Should Have Drivers!


Yes, I am old fashioned, and yes, I am totally against having cars on the road today without a driver. Tell me all about the technology that you wish, but none of it will bring back the Tempe, Ariz., woman who was killed by a driverless car recently.

“This tragic incident makes clear that autonomous vehicle technology has a long way to go before it is truly safe for the passengers, pedestrians and drivers who share America’s roads,” said U.S. Sen. Richard Blumenthal of Connecticut.

I surely agree. Mindless driving by many drivers is a huge problem. Driverless cars seem like a far bigger one to me. I am all for technological progress. But until patient testing and safety progress is assured, I am not a fan.
