US launches official probe into Cruise after pair of pedestrian accidents


Why not? In the end, it is likely that self-driving cars will be safer than human-driven cars. They won't get tired, distracted or drunk; they will actually improve their driving skills as time goes by, by software updates (compared to people who just get stuck in bad habits). Yes, we need to get over the initial hump of testing, testing, testing - but eventually, they'll come. And, of course, the more self-driving cars on the road, the more they can talk to each other and avoid hitting each other - they don't have to just work via what they see.

I would love to stroll out to my car, sit in it, and say "Take me to M&S, please".
