Google’s driverless car is good news for bad drivers, according to CNBC.
Look past the fact Google’s new prototype car doesn’t have a steering wheel or gas and brake pedals. Get over the gee-whiz fascination that people could soon be riding in driverless cars. Instead, see what the Google prototype could represent: the end of bad drivers.
Don’t laugh; this may be a peak at a future few could have ever imagined.
If Google’s prototype works as planned it will eliminate the need for humans to make driving decisions.
“They (autonomous cars) free us up to check e-mails, play on our phones, take video calls, or just take a nap while getting to work; things that many people try (and fail) to do today,” said Alec Gutierrez, senior analyst at Kelley Blue Book.
