Driverless cars will be the death of an expression of culture. Drift machines and drag monsters, donks and lowriders, mudders and rock climbers, art cars, oddities, and everything in between. Driving is an activity that connects you to your car and by taking the activity away, you're taking away that personal aspect and with that, any desire to make your car personal. It'll become just another appliance.

If that's what we're looking at, I say, just fuck self driving cars altogether and ramp up public transit and make cities public transit and pedestrian friendly again. It's probably the more environmentally friendly solution and honestly, if I'm forced to choose between buying a car I can't even drive and taking the bus, I'll take the fucking bus.
