    Self driving cars are all over Tempe Arizona at the ASU campus.
    these things drive slow, start off slow , turn slow, change lanes slow, i don't think any of them ever reach the speed limit. This is not a normal slow like you would think but a it's almost faster to walk slow.

    When the 202 gets backed up i am forced to go through Tempe , these things drive everyone crazy.

    can we have something like this in Wyoming because we have shortage of bus drivers mostly old guys driving buses but if we had driverless buses we wouldn't need to hire retirees to do it just have self moving buses well you might need drivers to operate so they might hire younger guys to do it maybe not anytime soon but like 10 20 maybe 30 or 40 years from now younger people today might learn how to operate this new technology and when they retire 50 years from now they might move to Wyoming to drive those driverless buses but who knows the future and how the economy is going to be like and how weather events and earth events go earth changes climate changes where was once land is now water where was water is now land Cheyenne Wyoming used to be a wealthy city had the potential to overtake new York and Denver in wealth and power now its a poor city new York and Denver beat Cheyenne in power and wealth

    So this is what started the Minority Report automated transport vehicle. The funny thing is, it's even shaped like what you'd imagine the prototype would of looked like haha. Automated freeways here we come.

    Watch how quick one of these self-driving vehicles gets vandalised with graffiti and possibly even greatly damaged by some asshole chav type of kids, or by a load of drunk hooligans. That's if the idea ever does get the green light. Just take a look at the large amount of rubbish like empty alcohol bottles and fast-food items that gets left about on public transport such as Southeastern trains throughout an average week, not to mention chairs being pulled out as well as random stuff in the carriages being lit with lighters and matches. It's a neat idea but the people of London don't deserve these sort of self-driving vehicles imo.

    If lazy people would like to travel about in speed and style, they'll use Uber, or use their own personal vehicles such as bicycles.

    If people cannot see inside and there is no driver, what is to prevent a criminal from assaulting, robbing or killing you?
