    R U serius

    Self-driving cars are now street legal in California | Technology News Blog - Yahoo! News

    I guess it can eliminate drunk drivers,they can just send their car to the liquor store.
    How about those long 2 hour commutes,just crash (hopefully not)in the back seat and wake up when the car pulls up at work.
    Could be a great game try to wreck into the self driving vehicle to see what kinda mad moves it will employ to avoid an impact.
    Your honor it wasn't my fault,the car was speeding ticket the car.
    Okay lets see some more funny statements

    Will it honk its horn and give the finger to other cars on its own?

    The sad thing is it will probably decrease the number of accidents even if it fails often. There are TONS of driverless cars already since many are texting or reading the paper or sleeping today.

    My car has known this for years.

    It'll be an interesting experiment, to be sure. Though, I am a bit concerned about the ramifications of a slow introduction of such vehicles into traffic that largely doesn't know it's there.

    Raises a lot of questions, for me: how will it respond to rapidly-changing situations; how will it respond to events not otherwise programmed into it; what's the laundry list of situations/conditions that has been programmed, versus what's missing?

    Only if equipped with the FTB package. I'm sure it'll be a big seller.

    it's good to see the state is tackling some serious issues. maybe now that people can finally buy robot cars, people and businesses will stop leaving California at such an alarming rate. :/

    If the car does something illegal, who gets the ticket? The owner, the manufacturer or the computer programmer?

    I'm sure they'll be Asimov's "3 laws safe" and wouldn't dream of doing anything illegal.

    Will it eliminate the requirement to have a drivers license? Can you cruise home legally drunk without getting charged with DUI?

    Thank God that I probably won't be still around when that happens. I feel bad for my kid and his kids though.

    Then the State will have to change it from a license to drive to a permit to ride. There is no way they will they give up the income they now receive from license sales.

    I was stationed at Miramar in 1994. On one of the unused parts of the base a group of scientists and researches had a self driving car facility. They had working prototypes back then and every now and then we would go over and watch them drive.

    That was 18 years ago. Frankly I'm shocked this didn't happen sooner.
