I wouldn't mind that actually might help people who can't drive or have had their license revoked etc.

I agree. Personally I don't mind operating a car. This may turn out to be the most revolutionary device since the remote control!!! We'll all be one step closer to being Java the Huts!!!

Yaay.

I have seen women driving down the road applying mascara, taking curlers out of their hair and talking on their cell phones. These cars are just what they need- or they could crawl out of the bed 30 minutes earlier... Which ever is easier. :)

Call me old-fashioned, country girl, afraid...but some of this "new" technology is going to bite us in the behind. So if there is an accident is it the "robot's " fault or the car owner who wasn't driving?
I personally would be a little freaked out if I looked in my rearview and saw a car coming up behind me, but the owner was in the passeger seat sleep..or drunk!

LOL, you are so right. Some women are daredevils when it comes to driving. I consider myself a safe and good driver. So when I see someone driving all crazy I automatic know itís a woman. Can you image what we could do hands free. Well this is the age of technology.

Have to be prepared for the future. I tell my Mom all the time if you do not know anything about computers/technology you will be in trouble. I am a geek; I love technology and always willing to learn more.

Don't care for anything that thinks without my input thats why I don't ride horses--sorry horse lovers,probably trust a horse more than a car with a brain.Its man made and will mess up.Why do they have recalls?---Just my opinion...
