Comment Of The Day: Unforeseen Consequences Edition

Autonomous cars are coming, and semi-autonomous cars are already here. They promise a new transportation future, with no traffic and increased productivity. But what if we encounter a new experience, one we’re not fully prepared for?

I mean, a car driving itself might be great for the driver, and for the guy who died watching gentlemen’s cinema behind the wheel. But what about for the other people in their cars?


Good point, Thebloody doesn’t have a Land Rover problem. Maybe we should just call this whole driverless car thing off. FOR DECENCY’S SAKE.


Congrats, Mr. and/or Ms. Bloody, on your COTD win. May you never be trapped in an autonomous car with some other wanker.
