    LA to NYC seems impressive, but then you think about it and realize that it's 3000 miles of highway driving, and like 5 miles of city driving... And highway is the easy thing for auto-autos.

    Wait, is it going to stop and fill itself up with gas too?

    Cross country trip, huh?

    Prediction: The public will finally realize that there are no such things as roads in middle America.

      Prediction: BMW will realize that the vehicles must be habitable for passengers not just machines.

      I mean....look at this:

      4. BMW is seriously ramping up its self-driving car efforts in 2017 to take on Uber.

    Some hippie in protest will jump in front of it and blow it up.  Sets back autonomous cars by ten years for everyone.

      Yes!  Or the car simply can't get through New York City due to pedestrians never actually waiting for a crosswalk sign...
