    They are already on US roads, in the testing phase.

    If you're asking about fully autonomous vehicles being available for the public to use, that's still a few years away...

    Hopefully about the time I'm too old to drive.

    Maybe twenty years from now they will be able to do so SAFELY

    I hope they are never allowed here. Stupid idea.

    My son drives a lot of GPS guided stuff. He says he will NEVER trust a GPS vehicle at highway speeds.

    They are already here. I see waymo testing them every day. I hope that they never become mainstream.

    Hopefully, never. We have enough trouble keeping accidents down. The incredibly complicated technology is bound to fail.

      Indeed, probably after people have become complacent. A failure wouldn't not be pretty.

    i have no idea when, or if that'll ever happen

    the technology may actually already be there, or nearly there. but i'm sure this kind of thing is inevitably going to kick up all kinds of opposition from people worried about what happens when some ai car kills a person, and so on

    and this of course despite the near certainty that such cars will never, ever, be anywhere near as deadly to others, as the the conventionally piloted, human driven cars, have always been. though yeah i'm sure the legal liability issues would keep some lawyers entertained

    then there's the added expense of all this. or is that not an issue? are new cars all dirt cheap these days? it's been a while since i bought one. decades.

    i think that yang character is right, in his book i mean, where he says you'd most likely see this in the trucking industry first, if it happened. well, he thinks it's definitely going to happen, like, real soon, but i'll wait and see on that front

    he thinks a whole lot of truckers are going to get thrown out of their jobs by it. now i've seen truckers say, well there's all kinds of aspects to the job your ai box isn't going to be able to do, but i suspect it wouldn't be too difficult to find a few, relatively low paid (relatively very low paid) flunkees to handle those

    but anyway, yeah who knows. hell we could all go up in radioactive flames next thursday.
