    Itís not, but petrolheads donít want them. And everybody else gives zero fucks so itís gonna become a financial decision, not an emotional one.

    If you want more road deaths, more pollution and more congestion this is an excellent idea

    Why wouldn't you be able to apply the same tech to ice cars? I have no idea why people think self driving is only an electric car thing.
    Because huge numbers of cities, if not entire countries, are on the verge of banning combustion vehicles because of the number of people they kill just by existing

    My car can do 0.12p/mile and this includes servicing and consumables and fuel, why would you want something that's equally or more expensive and not yours at the same time?

    This is what I can't understand. Maybe soon enuf people will pay other people to impregnate their wife, with all the effort involved and stuff.

    It's easier to roll multiple technological changes into single product offerings when they're fairly revolutionary.

    Your post history coupled with being a doctor is honestly one of the most bizarre aspects of this forum.

    An acquaintance of mine who is also a doctor said: "you don't have to be really bright to become a doctor. You just have to be hardworking to get through the books "

    Well, it is. If you're going to invest in a brand new fleet of self-driving vehicles, do you go for the ones that are likely to be banned* in your most lucrative markets within the next five to ten years or the ones that are likely to be the new global standard within our lifetimes?

    *If not banned then substantially more expensive.

    Same goes for HGVs. HGV companies are taking the opportunity offered by investing in self-driving truck research to also look at electric trucks. Why wouldn't they?

    You've just got to be rich enough to afford it.

    The catch is in the driving system not in the system controls. Controlling the steering wheel, gas pedals, brakes etc is the smallest problem here and the investment is virtually non-existent.

    I use a shared car that costs me far more per mile than yours does. I also guarantee I spend far less than you (well, car owners here) monthly on transportation.

    Can you figure out how?

    Not owning a car in favor of ubering and ride sharing and whatnot is has become fairly common in this city and it makes a ton of sense for everyone involved.
