Autonomous cars are coming, of course. I’m bitter about it but I’ll learn to accept it (I guess).
One thing I won’t accept, however, is the decline of auto ownership. I am not “sharing” a car. I’m not hailing a random autonomous car to come pick up my wife, future kid, and myself and shuttle us wherever. Can you imagine the messes (and various bodily fluids) people might leave behind? *shudders*
I’ve seen how disgusting some people allow their cars to become. And I’ve seen how disgusting public transportation is in big cities. Yuck.
There may be autonomous cars, but if I can manage it, I’ll sure as hell have my own.
