Dragon b/w

My prediction coming true

I've been predicting that within a few years, it'll be possible to buy a car with an optional autopilot that is as good as a chauffer.

A few years after that, it'll be standard equipment on new cars.

A few years after that, we'll start seeing cities that ban manual driving inside city limits.

Looks like it'll be here before my parents are too old to drive a car. Now, instead of taking away their car keys, I'd only have to disable the manual driving option.
