    I would imagine that these cars would be very expensive and that the average Joe wouldn't be able to afford one.

    When we have fully autonomous cars 9% of the USA will be unemployed. Not sure about the rest of the world but I’m sure they will be in a similar position

    I would never buy a new car -- far too great a waste of money (loss of thousands the moment you drive off the forecourt, all for no great gain).
    That said I could see myself having such a thing.
    Would want to see its ethics coding though, and I would be the kind of arsehole that reprograms it for me to always live.

    There are self-Driving UBERs all over Pittsburgh right now. They are mapping and testing quote "If we can drive in Pittsburgh, we can dive anywhere in the US".

    I remember about 10 or so years ago we watched a self driving car race through the desert for one of our classes. It was really cool but ultimately disappointing. One of the cars malfunctioned and ended up driving in donut circles in the desert. Its kinda amazing how far we have come.
