Self-Driving Cars

I love driving; so much so that I actually dread the day cars drive themselves.  Maybe “dread” is too strong a word, but I don’t get very excited about a future where driving is truly dead.  I mean, we’re already half way there at this point in America.  Hardly anyone can really drive their car.  You just have to watch any busy parking lot for 15 minutes and this becomes painfully obvious.  

Sometimes, though, I wish my car would drive itself.  Today was one of those days.  I was so stinking tired I just wanted to kick back and let the car do the rest.  Man it’s painful to be that tired, knowing that giving into the temptation to close your eyes could mean a fiery death.  A self-driving car would have been helpful. 

I suppose having one for those long road trips would be nice too.  It would be like having a mobile office, allowing me to get work done during all those otherwise wasted hours behind the wheel.  Shoot, an overnight trip wouldn’t be bad either.  Sleep on the way! Why not!?  I wonder how soon we’ll be there… Google?

Maybe it won’t be so bad after all.  I’ll be able to be more productive, or more asleep, while on the road and all the terrible drivers out there just won’t be driving anymore.  Sounds like a win win!  I can only imagine the day when cars actually obey basic traffic laws and don’t honk at you when they do something wrong.  Beautiful.  Heck, maybe the government could even offer a crappy driver stimulus package.

Every boy has a dream.
