Self-Driving Cars

Technology has brought us self-driving cars.  Google is experimenting with cars that drive around on public streets without human intervention.  Just program where you want to go and the car takes you there.

I think that's an excellent idea.  40,000 Americans are killed in traffic collisions every year.  I think we should make self driving cars legal in every state, right now.  I would require that the car contain a licensed driver who is in condition to operate the vehicle in the event of a problem.

People should not put their unattended children in the car and send the to school.  People who are too drunk to drive should not be in their car alone.  The driver should have a valid license and they should not be in the back seat.  This can save lives and we should be doing it right away; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.
