_hm, 

A judge would not agree with me about what? :/ 

Let's not forget that autonomous cars will help reduce road accidents, which are mainly caused by human error. When you don't have human error there won't be accidents. I have shared information about this somewhere here some time ago. Did you see it?

_hm, 

" ... in my city police gives nearly 2,500,000 illegal parking ticket every year. And most people are regular offenders."

It seems like I find that a little difficult to understand. :( I have some questions for you: What city are we talking about? Why so many people park in illegal parking spaces? Why people keep on doing the same again and again?

_hm, 

I don't think car manufacturers should carry any responsibility as in the case of any machine it's still responsibility of the one operating it. Autonomous cars still need someone to push the buttons.

@Susan: Fun part will be also lost, I can not park at any place illegaly, even if I am ready to pay fine. I always needs to walk from farther distance.

@Susan: Best part may be insurance for driver will be nil. Or may be car manufacturere carry the liability and it is included in the price.

Consumer probably were excited to see some completely new model not just an updrage from model S. But think again, all the electrical cars out there such as Nissan leaf would you ever imagine there is some electrical car that can actually have an outstanding performance as good as Ferrari? Tesla proves the point. Electrical car isn't ugly, it's nice and sleek. Electrical car isn't slow, it's as fast as Ferrari. Think about it again. Its awesome

Hailey, 

"Maybe we'll have automated cars that just take us to where we need to go. that's probably a ways off though. :)"

Autonomous cars are being tested in Sweden as I write this. The pilot is being conducted in normal driving conditions in roads normally used for communiting. Volvo will have 100 autonomous cars rolling in the streets in Göteborg by 2017. :)

They can take you to wherever you want while you do other things with your time. You can later on call your car and it comes to pick you up. The car parks itself and drives itself without even you being in the car. The Volvo project is supported by the Swedish government, which makes a difference with the other projects which are not supported.
