I like the way they call it Marty.

So now Autonomous cars will be better drivers than humans in all senses.  so if they kill a human, its the humans fault, unless it truly breaks down and goes crazy.

Might shake up the costa coffee being delivered.

We'll be ecstatic with our autonomous cars until we find out they'll only go as fast as the posted speed limit.

Hotrodding will require hacking and probably long jail terms.

Gonna be hard to go to the drag strip with a car that has no steering wheel.

I'm thinking just for faster ETAs, rather than straight up racing.
