    Google has helped secure driverless car legislation in California

    ^ eh hopefully that helps with the distracted drivers... I am so tired of people texting and driving. Saw a bad accident today where they had to close off the highway so they can fly in a chopper to airvac a person. What gets me is majority of the calls/text are those convos that can really wait til later. It be about stupid stuff about who dont like who at work or something. The epidemic of texting and driving is just getting ridiculous. It should be treated with the same seriousness of drinking and driving . Impaired driving is impaired driving; especially now when we have in car handsfree tech. Ok sorry bout my rant about texting and driving.

    My largest concern is rubber neckers seeing the car and causing accidents...


    I'm so sick of people down here..if they see a Leo with a person pulled over, and they don't bother to pull over to the next lane, but they sure as heck slow down to 20 MPH in a 70 MPH zone...

    It makes me mad as heck..they can't change lanes and keep driving... no.. they stay in the lane right next to the shoulder and clog up the interstate... and cause huge wrecks behind them....

    IDIOTS!!! OK..rant is over lol.

    Good for Google :) I don't see an apple car anywhere. :)

    Well given apple has their own maps the apple car would get lost, but that won't prevent the own of the apple car from trying to patent the idea so they can sue the owner of the Google car so they can keep the Google car from making the apple car from looking bad.
