Nevada legalizes self-driving cars. Starting on March 1st. This technology could lead to countries that drive themselves into the ground, which would allow Obama to spend all his time golfing.

Actually, this is only the first step towards driverless cars being available for purchase, and they will have to prove themselves to be fairly safe on private testing grounds before they get an actual permit to head out onto the public roads under this program. Also, there will have to be a minimum of two licensed drivers in the car as it drives itself around on the public roads, to take over if the computer makes mistakes.

I still don’t like it. If you can’t drive your own car safely, have somebody else do it for you, or take the bus. For me, I’ll just continue driving my own cars. I’m good at it, and I enjoy it.

I wonder what the insurance rates will be with driverless cars being “tested” on open, travelled roads?

More than I’m willing to pay.

You ever notice it’s Harry Reid’s state that gets all these useless pork experiments?

Well, at least there are endless miles of uninhabited desert for this experiment to crash and burn.
They are using Volts, right?

Will this eliminate DUI’s and stoners form driving? Or little old people who can’t see over the dashboard? Then bring ’em on!

Robots have to be better drivers than the scores of California drivers who wander aimlessly around Nevada roads.

When I’m on Nevada roads, I know exactly where I’m going. Just like I do when I’m on California roads.

Water cannon is fun for crowd control, but a mini gun is much more effective!
