Random Thought

Dave Killion — May 16, 2013

At some point, autonomous vehicles will create traffic that will be simply beyond the ability of human reflexes to negotiate. Long before that occurs, people will be prohibited from operating vehicles in most places. I wasn’t much bothered by that, until I put my motorcycle back on the road for this season. The thought that people won’t be able to commute by motorcycle makes me a little sad. But, the market delivers, and perhaps autonomous vehicles will be so much fun that they will somehow more than make up for whatever we have to give up.

I bet they’ll come up with bike lanes for motorcycles or something! I can’t wait for self driving cars, it’ll be like those party limos!
