A Switch To Shared Self-Driving Cars Means We’d Buy Fewer Cars, Wear Them Out Faster

Most Americans aren’t comfortable yet with the idea of riding in an autonomous car, but at one time, horseless carriages and electricity in our homes were scary, too. Technology companies and automakers are both working to make autonomous cars happen, but wouldn’t self-piloting cars mean that we would share vehicles or pay fares? That would dramatically shrink demand for cars, hurting automakers. Right?

It's going to eliminate DUI s A lot of people are going to be happy about that. A lot of others (lawyers, governments & police) are going to miss that revenue stream

Look at all the recalls we have had in the US the past 3 years - millions and millions of vehicles. So we are supposed to put our trust in "self driving cars"? I don't think so.
