If the legislature approves this it should be mandatory that the first passengers in such cars be the legislators who voted "yes" and that they must be taken for a ride on the 101 in the middle of heavy 75mph traffic.
this is an accident waiting to happen. i thought you were driving. no, i thought you were driving.
Do you agree that one of the most difficult things seniors have to give up is their driver’s license? I can say that giving up their driver’s license means no more freedom to come and go as they please. However, technology giant, Google, may have a solution for these elderly no longer allowed to drive. I've heard that the Google’s robo-car can accelerate, brake, and steer all on its own. In addition to that, it uses a database full of detailed maps to navigate and relies on cameras, radio sensors, and a laser range finder to sense nearby traffic and successfully navigate in it. It sounds pretty cool, right?
