Waymo (self driving car subsidiary of Google) just got their license from CPUC to give autonomous rides in CA. Would you get in one? Ultimately, these cars won't have steering wheels, brake or gas pedals. I had a chance to test one last year in Arizona in an enclosed test track with a safety driver, it was the best roller coaster ride of my life. My heart was beating like a Kawasaki motorcycle engine fully well knowing that I wouldn't die. 😆 Now they're offering free Wi-Fi and music service in Waymo cars to entice passengers.

    I'll agree to a short test ride after it's been adequately tested.  

    Adequate testing = REQUIRING all autonomous vehicle engineers and programmers, +  all members of their Board of Directors + ALL OF THEIR IMMEDIATE FAMILY MEMBERS to use autonomous vehicles as their primary form of transportation for a minimum of 5 years.  

    No better way to ensure the absolute highest product quality.

      I agree with you 100%. Just like I've been saying that all employees of UBER and Lyft must drive at least for three months after they are hired to experience what drivers go through. They should test the algorithms they unleash on us as guinea pigs themselves.
