....autonomous autos are either being tested or soon to be, which IS terrifying...but to blame that bitch of a fictional Fury is just stupid.....
I'm curious why they went with Christine and not MD since Christine was just one car, MD was every automobile and no offense to Christine but I'd be more spooked of a possessed semi.

As for automated cars, they're a necessary evil as we move forward. A lot of seniors just don't have their kids nearby to drive them to the doctor, the grocery store, etc, and so on and many get into accidents due to their age and their motor skills not being what they used to be. In short, automated cars will allow them to get to the doctor, store, etc, with less chance of plowing through a crowd of people. Sure, they're going to be ugly for awhile but like I said, they'll primarily be used by old people and the disabled properly and I don't think having a hot looking car is their primary concern. However, there's always a down side and if they can be hacked they will be hacked and that can cause an issue. I, Robot does come to mind.....

modern automated cars are totally bunk.
no thing is taking my control and love for driving away from me.
Well unless you're losing your reaction skills, I have no issue with you driving. When I think automated, they'd be for the legally blind, handicapped in other ways, and seniors who just lost their reaction skills. Best option, the cars in I, Robot, you have the choice to switch back and forth. When I used to drive to Oregon from Cali a lot, I'd have loved it if I could have set the car to automatic and nap for awhile. The grapevine gets damn boring.
