Here's some electric autonomous cars Apple is working on.








Eye-catching, sleek, incorporating Apple's trademark sleek design, these are what the world's graphic designers believe an iCar could look like. Refuelling rumours the tech giant's next big project is to bring a self-driving car to market, documents obtained by the Guardian say the company is searching for a location to test the autonomous vehicles to rival designs already manufactured by Google.

silly to someone who doesn't want to admit they are wrong.
here are a few aricles citing horse and buggies in the U.S.

dated dec1, 2014

Hundreds of New York horse and buggy drivers could be on the road to unemployment if a ban of the historic trade makes its way through the city council, a union representing carriage drivers said on Monday.


and a article back in Jan2012 on horses, buggies having the right away in several states.


Rules for Riders Traffic laws in a few states, including Colorado, Michigan, and New Mexico, specifically state that horses have all the rights and obligations of other vehicles when they are being ridden or driven on a public highway. Everywhere else, except in states like Louisiana where it appears to be illegal to ride a horse on a paved road, riders and drivers probably enjoy similar rights and obligations by implication.
Rules of the Road


Palm Springs Municipal Code

Every person conducting the business of horse-drawn carriages in the city and any person driving such a carriage for such a business shall comply with each and all of the following provisions and restrictions.
Palm Springs Municipal Code


so i have shown that on both east and west coasts and states in between, not just Amish and Mennonites use the roads with horse and buggies, that states see horses and horse and buggies as a means of transportation.

plus you never addressed the other countries in the world where buggies, wagon , carts, are pulled by horses, mules, ox, or what ever beast of burden they use.

as i said there are thousands if not hundred of thousands maybe even millions that use them daily. to deny it is being ignorant and we don't do that here.

Wrong about what?????

You're not making any sense. If humans driving cars are like horse and buggy rides in 2050-2060 then humans driving cars will be looked at as something novel.

This is why people take horse and buggy rides on a romantic evening and drive the other 99.9% of the time.

You said:

Hundreds of New York horse and buggy drivers

HUNDREDS??


We looked at the latest Census data on car ownership rates for households in the nation. According to the data, only 1.4 million households in the City out of the total 3.0 million owned a car.


While millions also catch cabs, ride subways or a bus.

You're making a very silly argument for no reason. If humans who drive cars are like horse and buggy rides in the future then it just proves my point.

Imagine an EMP attack during rush hour in a busy city full of autonomous cars.
I can see that being a huge mess.

Yes. The cars would all stop because their electronic ignitions (or engines) would be fried.

Yeah, all the motors would cut off.
But what about brakes and steering?

I think the lyrics about sum up my comment. Who would have thought Rush were prophetic? Considering some of their songs that's kind of scary.

I don't think self driving will be made illegal by 2030.
I think insurance will be prohibitively expensive if you choose to drive yourself.

The auto industry and medical community make too much money off of our love for going fast for it to be made illegal any time soon.


Exactly! And when you kill or injure someone there will be no liability limits - and be then the awards to the injured or estate will be astronomical.
Not to mention people who can afford to and want to drive themselves will be percieved about the same as the Big Game Hunters of today... percieved as not caring how much they endanger the rest of us... should be interesting!

That would be a mess right now. Current vehicles are not immune to EMP.

Tried driving without power steering and brakes?

I think an EMP attack is a pretty minor concern, in any case.

I have two teenage drivers currently in my house.
I will have two more teenager getting their permits in a couple months.

This vehicle may relieve some parent's fears.

I'm all for it. Going through last class for 2nd DWI right now. Give me champagne and bangin in the backseat with my woman over driving around pissed off at idiots any day. The thing is once we take this step, I mean why don't we just go all the way with evacuated tubes, maglev, things like that? This is safer, but not much more efficient (no lead foot, okay maybe a bit). We could do even better by 2030.

Nah, I doubt it. I don't even think they'll make all public transportation systems automated by then, much less the cars of private citizens.
