The change is coming. Even if there are pushback and delay of self-driving cars, it is something that will happen. It might not be in 2 years, but as technology improves and the topic becomes exponentially top of mind, there will be a transition. You can already see related changes in large cities. People are more reluctant to buy and own cars. Instead, they opt for public transportation especially since a custom version of it (Uber and Lyft) are now widely available. Why own a car and worry about maintenance, insurance, and parking when you can get a car on demand via a car-share service. Folks are looking for convenience and a car that gets you to your destination while you catch up on latest show, messages, books and more would most certainly provide that for them.

Traveling in an ordinary car, while occasionally pleasant in its own way, is a taxing experience.

The Future Of Human-Independent Travel Is Almost Here

Autonomous Cars, Trucks and Buses

Not too long ago in a few sci-fi movies, the characters were shown jumping into a vehicle that pulled up next to them sense a driver. They also did not have to get behind the wheel, but could sit back after telling the car their destination. The reality of such commute is very close. Tesla's auto pilot goes beyond just cruise control by taking over the car and not only controlling speed but also distance to the nearest vehicle and has the ability to slowdown, stop, or even switch lanes as necessary.

Since the technology is very new and, while working well, is not fool-proof yet it is not recommended to leave it unattended 100%.
