  • Eventual complete safety

    At the minute, there are too many variables that will cause more crashes. Once those are taken care of and implemented with the cars, the safety will be impeccable. Disabled people will no longer have to give up their keys. People will have more time. Drunk and texting while driving will be eliminated.

  • It just makes sense.

    While it would take a while, since quite a few people are so irrationally against the concept of a self-driving car, once they become the norm here are some changes that would occur as a natural consequence:
    -better mileage
    -faster transit times
    -fewer accidents
    -better human efficiency due to more free time

    The only reason I can think of why people are so against self-driving cars is that they just don't trust technology. They're perfectly fine with technology controlling much more dangerous operations, yet as soon as a car becomes automated they spaz out.

  • It takes time, but otherwise, yes.

    If you want self-driving cars, then you might as well implement it on every vehicle in the world. Doing so would mean that every single car responds to each computer's action (Which is similar to fighting games with computer players, where the input and output are performed by the computers). However, development should still take place as the new devices look protruding and invasive to the original design shape of a car. Instead, a more hidden or even built-in functions should be widespread in the near future for self-driving cars to exist in our society.

  • A step towards future

    Self-driving cars are a step towards future. If there is some problems with the technology we must rectify it.

    Sometimes computers got hacked, solution, to this problem is not to retract our path to use manual means in offices, rather we should have better security measures.

    With failure in traffic signals or other failures not only automated cars but also a manual cars can get in accidents.

  • Better than most drivers

    Any evidence to the contrary i consider at most anecdotal. We trust machines with most every other aspect of our lives, and somehow we as the human race refuse to give up control of multi-ton vehicles to machines that were specifically designed to ONLY drive? No distractions, no texting, no mental illnesses, no aggression, no driving under the influence? YES PLEASE!

  • Because it's smarter than you

    A person is smarter than a machine, but only on a case by case basis. When we do repetitive tasks we tend to become easily distracted and the result is that people text, eat, fall asleep, etc. Self driving cars are able to maintain the same level of alertness 100% of the time. Of the self driving cars already on the road, there is a clear track record of safety with the majority of accidents being the result of human errors from the other drivers.
    Self driving cars would also allow freeways and city blocks to move more uniformly, reducing traffic and eliminating "stop and go." Even if you don't reduce the net travel speed you'll still save fuel because you can maintain a steady speed.

  • I believe we should have self driving cars

    If we did have these highly technologically advanced auto mobiles then it would make our lives so much easier and resolve many issues for accessibility for everyone for example if you were disabled, and could not drive a normal car. Also it can prevent drinking and driving, texting while driving..Ect

  • Yes we do

    81 percent of car accidents happen by human distraction, computers can't be distracted. They can tell each other when to brake and when to go and they will not have traffic jams . They will obey signal sent from traffic lights and can be told by police to pull over with signals sent from their cars.

  • Disabled people cant drive

    Some people have a lost leg and cant step the go button on cars. Because of this Self Driving Cars would most likely be the solution. Just tell the car where they want to go and you can go there. So that's why I beleive self driving cars are great

  • Too many issues.

    Sure, you can load up a car with all kinds of sensors to track not just other cars and the roadway but also some pedestrians like if someone is jaywalking. Thing is, what about things that are not in the lane of traffic? For instance, what happens if crossing traffic fails to stop for some reason? If I am driving, I could see that another car may not stop so avoid being T-boned in the intersection. There is also the pedestrian issue. If your driving, you can see usually tell if someone is about to cross the street vs if they are just going to stand on the side of the road. These visual cues would be difficult if not impossible for sensors to detect and analyze. This would mean that either this would cause many people to be needlessly hit by cars or that the cars would stop or slow to a crawl whenever a pedestrian was near creating traffic jams everywhere.
    Look, it's not like they would be like an elevator were nothing else would block the path. These are roads where an obstacle can come from anywhere. Would the sensors see a fallen branch as a solid surface or empty space? Can it see and predict the movement of people or animals that are not in it's path? Even the surface can present issues. Can the sensors tell the difference between a damp road surface and a coating of ice? If not, would the car slow to a crawl after a light rain or would it fail to slow down for a big patch of ice?
    Yet another issue would be the computer system itself. What happens if the system has a program error or a short? Would it strand you out in the middle of nowhere or just keep obeying it's last command causing the car with the unaware passengers to go off cliffs or slam into walls? Yet another issue with the system would be hacking. Because roads are being changed on a regular basis, the cars would need to update their information on a regular basis. If someone was to hack this system, they could cause mass havoc. For instance, they could tell the system that a highway was detoured down a single land dirt road or on a route far away. They could even change it to make people think that a new bridge or tunnel had been constructed causing the unaware traveler be killed as a result.
    About the only way such a system could be used safely is if it was exclusive to self-driving cars, much like how an elevator shaft makes the travel of the elevator safe.

  • It is dangerous and stupid and lazy

    It is dangerous because über' self driving cars have ran red lights and that could cause a fatal crash. It is stupid because I am really into cars and driving and I would not enjoy driving with those. And it is lazy beacause you are sitting in a car doing nothing and that would make everyone with a self driving liars look like losers.

  • Self driving cars are lame

    Why take the thrill out of driving? Self driving cars are dangerous and it is weird to see a car moving with no one in it. Problems can occur with self driving cars due to there technology. If any of you guys haven't here of the self driving tesla that thought nothing was there and smashed into a trailer?

  • When one thing advances, so does the other.

    Your having self driving cars, it's great at the first glance, but think about it when you have the other side. Hacker they can just hack into the cars and make them crash and mess you up, when technology advices, it ALL advances, no matter how bad. They can take control of your vehicle and crash you everywhere and you can't do a thing about it. Be manual, not automatic and lazy.

  • Muhahahaha...This'll be entertaining...

    Do I like the idea of taking you morons out from behind the wheel? Absolutely.

    Here's the thing... We either replace all cars at once with self-driving ones, or we start by only allowing them in certain geographic boundaries until the concept spreads. Practical, right? Nope. Why? You put self-driving and manual cars together, and those who drive manual cars are going to just f*** with you so bad. Manual drivers could easy control your car with their driving behavior. If these self-driving cars operate as advertised, then I could literally stop you or pull you over...And you can't do a d*** thing about it.

    Just a single thought of the hundreds I could pull outta my ... Right now about things that could be [maliciously] done to self-driving cars. Don't even get me started about hackers, car thieves, emergency situations, etc. This is one of those things where it sounds good on paper, but it's just bad, mmmkay.

  • We're not as advanced as we think we are

    Humanity seems to be just advanced enough to have great technology but not advanced enough to keep it error-free and virus-free. There are so many things that could mess up with a self-driving car. Plus, computers can only do as they're told (which is a good thing) unlike a human, they can't make random split-second decisions or know when to stop like a human can.
