Only the Americans could be so stupid as to propose driverless cars. All part of Google’s ongoing attempt to destroy its own motto, “Don’t be evil.”
The driverless-car more evidence of the desperation that accompanies the collapse of an era. Here’s my top 5 reasons why the driverless-car is insanity:
1.Destruction of the planet. Even if they run on electricity (i.e. coal), we’ve still got pollution from roads, asphalt, chemicals, gas – gas prices – gas supply, wildlife, water pollution, heat. Gen Y will save the planet. Gen Y will not drive.
2.Gen Y doesn’t want stuff. Cars are not used 90% of the time. Why pay for them. Why take care of them. Why pay $30 a day for it to sit in your garage. Gen Y is about reducing material goods, not increasing them.
3.Go 200 mph, really? Trains already go 200 mph. Do you really want to go 200 mph in a driverless-car?
4.No deaths, really? Zero, zip, nada? That’s quite a promise Google. Trains have incredibly low death rates. No one died in the U.S. last year while on a train.
5.Who pays the insurance? When a driverless-car cracks up, does Google have enough insurance to pay the enormous billion dollar claims coming its way?
Plus, No congestion? How do they figure that? Less congestion, maybe. No congestion?
Are you really going to put your 6 year old daughter in a driverless-car and send her off? I’m not.
