    Im wondering how these new driverless cars can possibly co-exist with human driven cars? Wouldn't all the inconsiderate drivers who cut people off take that to the next level? If I am driving and notice a driverless car, I could cut it off, not yield etc and have no fear as it would react automatically to prevent the collision. I could easily exit in traffic, fail to yield, swerve at it etc. Would this not lead to total chaos? I have had a few adult beverages so maybe I need to switch to water and not concern myself. What are the odds that we will experience driverless cars in significant numbers in the next 5-10 years?

    What about when the light is red, but a police officer is waving you to move forward? I wonder what will happen?

    I'm going to watch. I wonder if they will bring this up. There are so many classic cars and car enthusiasts that I cant see everyone turning their cars in. But unless everyone is using the technology, I dont see how it could work. Maybe there will be two types of roads. I just drove back and forth from South Florida to Tucson and back and definitely would have enjoyed letting the car drive while I slept. Car designs would change and focus on comfort so you could work or sleep while being driven... If you aren't driving, do you care about horsepower, acceleration etc? I'm so confused!!!

    So, how does this impact one's insurance? Does it go higher or lower? Does it matter anymore if you have points on your license since your not behind the wheel?
