5 questions about self driving cars to think about

5 things I hate about self-driving cars:

1. Why would you want one?
2. How frightening is it going to drive in the Boston area
3. Are safeguards really going to exist on them or is it going to take a heap of deaths and crashes and redesign to actually make them safe
4. Why are spending all this money on these cars and roads when we could use lowering the fossil foot print we’re doing by using public transportation? Shouldn’t we count in job loss, insurance cost, deaths, etc and whether it’s worth it?
5. Do you really want software engineers to make ethical decisions?
