Why on earth do we need more regulation in our lives? Self-driving cars are simply another way government can track our lives. We need self-driving cars so that, what, we can have more time to text behind the wheel? I hope this family sues those negligent. https://t.co/Uwlw4cSVod

This is just an innately bad business decision because even if you were to have a near perfect self-driving Uber, the moment an accident happened (and one would), there's always going to be backlash that wouldn't exist otherwise. https://t.co/JhtVbptwLF
