“Look, Ma! No hands!”

The self-driving car has been in testing operation over the last year. As of August 2012, Google’s team of engineers said their cars have driven 300,000 miles accident-free. In Nevada and California they are street legal.

That’s right, the future is not so far away.

For those of us who think we’re great drivers, we may have just found our match…or perhaps our superior.

That’s not all:

    I've seen nothing that says a driverless car can distinguish between a kitten and a big leaf.
    Until it can, we can't have driverless cars for obvious reasons.
    Will a driverless car brake/swerve for a mouse, rat, or a raised piece of road tar?
