Not long from now, a lot of cars will be driver less and there will be safer roads I guess. Although the thrill is taken out of driving, comfort and safety is improved.

GM’s self-driving Chevrolet Tahoe, nicknamed the “Boss,” was developed by the Carnegie Mellon University Tarton Racing Team, and was initially unveiled during the DARPA (Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency)
