    Now tell me, who wants a car that drives itself? After all, the fun part is the actual driving experience...

    looks like electric wheel chair... I think this is future... some newer cars can park automatically so why not drive a drunk guy home safely? :)

    I think they would be good to use in big cities, might ease up on the congestion a bit. But they don't provide much protection if you're in an accident.

    If you don`t like driving you can hire someone , even if they build something like this they can not avoid accidents like a person would do.

    I personally have been waiting on this since the Jetsons. I don't care to drive so my vote is with the car driving me. Also, I can fire my chauffeur and cuddle with the cutie in the cozy coupe alone! :hitit::smlove2:

    P.S. Of course the vehicles will have to look better than those, but, you get the idea,lol.
