Respectfully, couldn’t disagree more. You may get some insightful perspective by reading “The Box,” a history of the introduction of the shipping container. Then, too, some longshoremen whose work was threatened attacked this innovation in the same self-destructive and ultimately pointless kinds of ways.

In New York City, and San Francisco, in particular. In Newark, and Oakland they tried to work with it. In the former, piers are now empty, if they exist at all. In the latter, well paying jobs still exist in shipping.

I would think it would be pretty obvious that a vehicle with sufficient sensors to operate on a highway would have the kind of real time data sharing that would be of use to law enforcement. To be sure, there will be some of what you say. But like smashing looms in England it will have only a temporary effect.

So, to suggest that this innovation won’t take place because there will be jobs lost or people upset is to say that this would be the first time in human history that a technology wouldn’t be used, for the sake of preserving some manual labor work, and that seems pretty unlikely.

Thanks for reading, I appreciate the feedback.
