It feels weird to think that we are the last generation of people to actually drive their cars. our kids and grandkids probably won't even get to experience any of this. it's a shame.

It's the beginning of the end lads.
Do you think the government is just burning that $4b? That $4b is going to employing people. It's not charity, if you're buying $4 billion dollars worth of goods and services, that's a lot of money that's going to circulate through the economy. Keeping people employed and creating jobs indirectly helps fight drug abuse and stuff for obvious reasons.
>tfw all of my hobbies are either becoming socially unacceptable or already were in the first place
Why live lads?
Just learn to mindlessly rant about sports/social media/pop music/culture in a socially acceptable measure and you can slowly disintegrate into uninteresting and unstoried dust leaving nothing of any value behind
>Why live lads?
So you can help fight back when everyone has finally had enough of the bullshit and snaps back. The pendulum can only swing so far in one direction before it has to come back.
I feel like things have been gradually going left since like 1860 though. it's not like it's gonna swing so far right that slavery is reinstated and women lose the right to vote or something.
I don't see normies swinging very far right at all
The fuck can we do about this. I'm serious. How do we ensure we can keep driving our cars the way we do now?
>I feel like things have been gradually going left since like 1860 though
Then why is modern media lamenting millennials embrace of firearms?

Sounds like you're a homophobic-racist-sexist-anti-womyn-anarchist-baby killer anon
Why else would you like murder tools and oppression carts that can't even fit your standard womyn 500lb goddess
That's a nice thought, except YOU will be in those driverless cars when they go from an idea, to recommended, to mandated
>being left-leaning but still enjoying freedom, unchecked language, and fun things
I know how it feels to have nobody like you, friend.

Humanitarian efforts are nice but ultimately useless
Anyway I posted this a thousand times but I want to buy a motorcycle and if all of the stupid cunts texting and driving buy an autonomous car then my chance of getting killed is dramatically lowered.
See, this is the thing though, what's actually going to happen is:
>We start off by making some roads driverless vehicle only
>Manually driven cars won't be allowed on these roads
And then, over some years...
>The number of roads manually driven cars are allowed to be driven on is dropping, thanks to increased safety from better situational awareness on the part of the computer, and better programming
>Manually driven cars will be seen as a liability, and possibly dangerous
>Insurance premiums will go up if you don't get a driverless car because muh safety
>Licenses will be extremely difficult to get and possibly only grandfathered because government will want to reduce manual vehicles on the road
>Girls won't be impressed because you'll be seen as a weird creep, much like people who are into retro computing and stamps are today
Though I would throw everything else away for the sake of cars.
>>not hanging onto your old car
>thinking it won't be taken
Nigga you registered it right?
They know where it is.
>killed is dramatically lowered.
no it's not, iirc some sensors, including ones on traffic lights bounce signals off metal paneling.
Motorcycles are hard to see for traffic light sensors because they can't really detect you.
>government thinks it's too unsafe
It's the laziest form of comedy. Just about every single right wing """"comic"""" I've read is some variation on:
>here's a stupid left wing extremist!
>here's a stupid thing they say!
>here's my comparitively rational response!
>the stupid idiot is flustered! What an idiot!
>laugh at the idiot! Haha!
Humor requires wit. This isn't wit.
My African American brethren
That being said I don't think trumps tax policy is terrible if I read the most current one. It's just the rest thats...well....
>It's just the rest thats...well....
He's literally the only candidate with balls enough to say what middle America is thinking.
Sure he's an asshole but he's not a wrong asshole and in perfect health.
>mfw he chops your foreskin off with a sharp rock just like abraham did while you're under anesthesia
>occupant now free to do other things while in transit while simultaneously increasing safety and traffic efficiency
>NO!!! EVERYONE MUST REMAIN TECHNOLOGICALLY STAGNATED FOR MY DRIVING PLEASURE!!!
In 2 decades or so maybe
GPS tracking of all cars with automatic tickets issued if detected speeding will become mandatory within the next 15 years because terrorism, mark my words
You guys love feeling persecuted.
If California permits and smog exempts old ass cars right now, you have nothing to worry about for the rest of the fucking country. Despite most people not giving a shit about driving, there's still some car culture here even if it's mostly with the boomers. Shit will get grandfathered in. No one's going to take your car. Worst case scenario is that AI cars get their own high speed lanes that you can't go on.
Maybe in your backwards-ass country. In America most states don't even allow speed Cameras.
I personally welcome self driving cars. I wanna be like Will Smith in iRobot and have an old vehicle that most other people are afraid to operate.
> safety over freedom
Faggots. All of them. Your driverless won't let you go down that unknown dirt road or carve up the mountain pass.
Though autonomous is a great thing for the old or impaired. I welcome that part of the change. Grandpa missis driving, and I know I will miss doing what i want when im 91. Which to me means people who will choose it while healthy have a mental disability. Kinda like whomever drives front wheel cars.
>tfw everything I love is becoming illegal and taboo
My state is about to ban all seni-auto centerfire rifles, they've already severely restricted hunting, I'm going to have to register my little RC Drone with the FAA, and in a matter of time non-driverless cars will become illegal.
When can we start hanging politicians?
Just keep what you love. keep your guns. keep your cars. keep what you love hold it close and never forget the way things used to be when we were free before the terrorists came over and took our freedoms
>driverless car discussion
>THEY'LL BAN NON-SELF DRIVEN CARS
>JUST LIKE THEY DID WITH CARS WITH NO CATALYTIC CONVERTERS, OR AIRBAGS
>approach pack of self driving cars
>entire pack is travelling at 80 MPH because the only speed limit is for fuel efficiency, cars geared for fuel efficiency at higher speeds
>they instantly open up and let me blast through because a previous pack had already reported my presence
Funnily enough there have been politicians in my country who said quote unquote that motorcycles are only still legal out of habit and if they were invented today they wouldn't even see public roads.
Yeah, instead police departments in the US have to deploy human resources for speed checks, making tickets more expensive, in addition to enabling power trip police behavior because while they're pulling you over they might as well give you a ticket for something else or search your car because they've "smelled marijuana". Meanwhile a speed camera will just snap a shot and send you the bill in the mail and everyone will be treated the exact same.
Fucking hell I've gotta buy a motorcycle sometime soon before this kinda mindset spreads around.
