Google and Elon Musk have being working on these 'self-driving cars' for a while now and they said that it would be available to the public in only a few years. For someone like me who hates driving i can't wait till it gets here!

What do you guys think about self-driving cars?

I'm pretty sure that if you have enough money for a Tesla car (like $90,000 give or take) Model S you can have a self-driving car today.

They are incredible and will be on the road soon.

There's going to be a lot of unemployed long-haul truck drivers in the next 10 years.

Thats good I guess, as long as i can still drive when I want to.

Who knows, they might get rid of cops and speed cameras if everyone has a self driving car. Then I won't be at risk when I'm going 150!

They already have some self-driving 18-wheelers, but as I understand it, the law requires that there is always a person, awake and ready to take over, in the driver seat. I don't see that law changing, so I doubt truckers will have to deal with unemployment any more so than they do now.

Well, not sure if they are actually a thing, so to speak. I know there have been some testing and prototypes and that the law is already prepared in some states.

I see this news so useless...I like driving.

I guess it is a good thing for drunk people.

For now.

I don't see truck drivers losing their jobs for at least a decade, but it will happen.

Going to be a long time until they are affordable and work everywhere. There likely needs to be some basic infrastructure changes before it's 100% viable in cities. That's assuming the demand is even there. I don't think it is for the general public, but I'm sure there are commercial uses for the technology.
