I’ll be eagerly awaiting part two, but I think part 1 makes a great case for exactly why I support both connected vehicle technology and self-driving cars. I have a problem understanding why the article describes this another “over-regulated fishbowl.” Is the implication that the system is currently unregulated? The only additional regulation cited in the article will be the requirement for legacy vehicles to install a ‘transponder.’ So? I think the article downplays the significance of a generational transition to self-driving cars. It isn’t just better fuel efficiency, faster commutes, and reduced pollution — which are all great. It’s not even the $120b in lost revenue. A nation of self-driving cars also includes about 10k fewer deaths due to intoxicated drivers.
