i travelled allot. like, so much that 400 km doesn't seem very far to me. i swear more then half my life was spent on the road, since my mom shipped mushrooms all over the place and i was too young to be alone so i would go with her. now i've seen some pretty crazy things go on. true automated cars would make the roads safer, but it also gives the possibility of hackers. if a car has ANY sort of connection to the internet, or government computers or satalites or anything, there's always the chance someone can hack into your car, take control of the gps, change where you're going, or even take control of the entire car and cause a huge accident. i fear automated cars more then normal cars. i just wish people would be more responcible and learn to pay more attention and not just think of themselves being a few minutes late for a meeting or something. i'd rather be late then take someone's life. that's why i don't like the new cars that have built in things that connect to phones and built in gps and all that stuff, it just increases the risk of someone hacking in. even the government can do this if they don't like where you're going or want full control over you, they can take control of your car and take you wherever. idk if people have noticed, but barely anything is private anymore. i don't like the whole world knowing what i do in my life. it's just more ways for them to control how you live and what you do. i value my independance, if i could i would just live somewhere alone in the woods, away from people who try to control me for their own purposes.
in other words, i don't agree with automated cars. automated cars won't fix how people think. it won't fix the fact that they're still selfish and greedy (not everyone, but some people) automated cars will just make it easier for them to think this. what they need is to be forced to stop thinking like that. a good way to do that is driving. if they learn to follow safety rules and consider other peoples situations, they'll stop thinking like that.
when i pass my drivers test, im gonna get an electric car with the least ammount of stuff that connects to internet and all that. they're better for the environment, and are safer because if they get into an accident they won't blow up since there's no gas in them.
