Quote of the Day: Driverless Cars

| Tue Aug. 14, 2012 12:33 PM EDT

From Alex Tabarrok, about the misgivings some people have about letting computers drive our cars:

At first when there is an accident people will ask, “did he have the driverless option on?” But soon they will start to say “if only he had the driverless option on.”

Yep. I agree with everything else he says too. In fact, just as many 20-somethings no longer know how to drive a stick shift, I'll bet that in twenty years a lot of 20-somethings won't know how to manually drive a car at all.
