    That was a great video with some varied insights. Exit to exit; allowing new jobs that are local; computer driving driving straight makes tires last longer by x%.

    [9:50] "Even the most advanced technology still struggles with bad weather...."

    If they don't overcome that problem then the geographical range is going to be limited; we had great weather yesterday till a heavy rain storm appeared out of nowhere (even my X indicated that "blindspot detection was unavailable") so would a driverless vehicle just stop? Gotta fix some basic issues if driverless vehicles are ever to become a reality.
