If true, I'm never getting on a highway again...

Several companies have been operating self driving trucks in Texas for more than a year. They all have safety drivers and are mostly operating on just the interstates.

Self-driving vehicles are safer than a human driver could ever hope to be.

Can't wait till autopilot is in most cars. Waiting an extra 5 or 10 minutes at stoplights because people can't look up from their phones and drive gets annoying after awhile. I could see having a special license to unlock "self drive" as a good thing.

At this point I don't believe this is true. Or at least if it is it isn't the whole truth. Humans are a lot better at predicting what dumb **** the other humans around them are going to do.

No doubt that if all of the vehicles were self-driving it would be safer though.

There used to be a time when I never would have thought self-driving vehicles could be safer. Now, with all the morons who have their head stuck in their phone, I would love to get to a place where all vehicles were self-driving.
