Thanks for the feedback! Totally agree that safety is the primary concern folks have right now about self-driving cars. By the numbers, they just have to be safer than us — which isn’t a high bar. But the reality is that they’ll be held to a much higher, near-perfect standard.
I love this piece overall and agree with your assessment of where we are headed. But I can’t stop thinking about this one point, that deterrents are our best hope to avoid the nightmare scenario where people simply trade personal gas vehicles for autonomous gas vehicles.
