What reality is that? So the cars are a good idea but reality is not?

I like the idea of self driving cars- but I don't like the reality of the world in which they're being brought up.
Why would you think this won’t be optional. Of all the options available on cars today, you can still drive the first cars ever built, why would this be any different?
but it needs to be optional.
In this world, it won't be.
What exactly have you lost or are losing?
The same way we're losing everything else independent of their complete control.
What laws, regulations, and restrictions are they changing every year? You need to monitor emissions and make sure your car can operate safely. I have an old car and it predates emission tests so no need. There are no laws, regulations or restrictions preventing me from driving it. We must live in two different realities.
They're already doing it with older cars- I drive a thirty year old car, and it's harder every year to keep it on the road. Not because I can't keep it running- it's the most reliable car I've ever had... but because they keep changing the laws, regulations, and restrictions that I have to follow to legally drive it.
