Thanks, very fascinating. I feel like I'm in a very unique position because I see perhaps a dozen autonomous cars in our neighborhood on most days. When I talk on the phone, I'm out walking. I run, ride my bike, drive walk the dog, and skateboard around them all the time. Kids are always out in the street playing hockey or basketball.
I'm not complaint-free about them, but generally I've come to trust them more than cars with humans at the wheel. Some humans drive extremely aggressively, which the self-driving cars never do, and you see the humans not always paying attention.
I have a sense that in certain areas where the weather and roads are good, like ours, it won't be long until the data shows conclusively what my intuition tells me, that they are safer. And then we'll have some very serious debates.
