California Gov. Jerry Brown signed legislation this week legalizing driverless cars on Golden State highways.
Google co-founder Sergey Brin says they’ll likely be available within the next four years.
So what happens when a driverless car hits another driverless car? I guess, no-fault insurance was ahead of its time. Or may we’ll just sue Google since it’s going to be doing the driving.
I still think the driverless car is a lot further away than five years. And I bet when they come out with them they’ll be of little use for bar-hopping. The people riding in them might still be charged with driving while intoxicated, or maybe the driverless cars won’t know to pull over.
I have a lot of questions about these things.
