    No
    I disagree . When deaths and lawsuits start the PR would kill it . Some companies have recently pulled out of automated automobiles recently for the same reason.

    Brownslave688 You want a toe? I can get you a toe.

    See I say we’re going through all of that now. For the next 5-7 years. Then they’ll just be accepted.


    I mean every problem they’ve had so far you can blame on human error. Driverless cars aren’t the problem

    I agree but again compare how many human driven cars there are vs automated cars? We aren't even close .

    Neither of us know what's going to happen . Just opinions.

    They have been running triples in other places for many years. But only a few roads in good weather.

    Right. That would be the place to run driverless rigs.

    Nothing against you guys at all. I just see something like ups feeders And OTR as one of the easiest things to replace with this tech. Mostly highway driving. Same destination every time.

    True. I imagine you’d just have to put a slow vehicle in front of it and slow down to a stop.

    No offence but this coming from someone who doesn't have a CDL? There are a lot of things that can go wrong and when things go wrong it's never a fender bender .
