"Musk and his fellow tech CEOs promote driverless vehicles as the future because it's the future they desire. They don't want to be on a subway or train next to regular people — as Musk has already said, one of them might be a serial killer! It's troubling how much they want to isolate themselves from regular people, but the reality of urban mobility is that only a small portion of the population can be in individualized transport until it simply stops working."
I'm not a big fan of Elon Musk. I think he's driven by a huge self-serving ego. He's charming and charming people can be dangerious.
