Irresponsible driving WILL be curtailed as autonomous vehicles roll out over the next 4-5 years. I am going to go out on a limb and say in the near future autonomous driving functions will be a legal requirement for all new vehicles and retrofitting older vehicles will be subsidized. Let's face it, driving is a very simple task but because people are so easily distracted the resulting accidents and collisions end up costing every individual more. Insurance companies, doctors and hospitals, parents... All of these groups will demand this technology be made standard and people will be freed up to watch TV, text or take a nap in their own cars.
