you can have my car, when you tare it from my cold dead fingers.... you will never get me to give up my 1965 corvair, and i will never trust my life to a computer that cant have the situational judgement that i can
im 22 and have never touched drugs, have fun with that, i was given the car by my father, and i will never give up the freedom to go ware i want as i want, would you want a bike that tells you ware you can and cant go, without your input? no i didnt think so, so why is a car different?

I would take you more seriously if your spelling was correct.
I'd definitely want manual override. Otherwise, I think it is a pretty great option.
It'll be a huge deal when an automated car is, inevitably, involved in an accident. Maybe even the party at fault. Even if it is FAR more rare than accidents of non automated drivers, people will demonize it.
Yep I was thinking the mirror opposite, not only is this progressive and great like cruise control for fair weather driving assistance, BUT I DO actually want to know if Google is working on self balancing, and driving bikes.
It will be far more economical to have pods of self driving eBikes on the roads at rush hour versus cars.. AND though it isn't the focus, having your car mozy to its spot at lunch time when the roads are less congested, or the mid afternoon, that would be mighty useful.
And it would be great for this to become mandatory in 10 years time like hands free rules, and seat belts are now. Just in the interest of public safety having all cars reporting their position and speed would be worth it but not their destination (they track your phones for that already).
@whysobluepandabear, I agree with what you said! This will lead to less traffic because you wont have idiots cutting people off or driving too slow on the passing lane, and you wont be stressed out any more about being stuck in rush hour traffic, just take a nap! The manual control override is a must though. I support the new technology, bring it to Canada!
