From the story where they said the car would drop a passenger off, and then go pick up somebody else...I got that they are planning on people sharing cars. It would be interesting to see what the cost of these automated taxis is.

I still want to see how insurance is going to work on this because they are machines shit is gonna happen and then what? Are my rates going up because my robo car rear ended someone? Sounds like a slippery slope

I hate this in a way, but it would be awesome to be able to go out for a few beers and not worry about driving.
