No Way! I'll drive myself!

Self-driving cars will take over the roadways eventually. The technology is there and most people say they will become more "mainstream" within the next 10-15 years.

But are you open to the change? Or do you want to be the only one driving your car?

A 2008 study by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration found that 95% of all car accidents are caused by human error. Some experts predict that self-driving cars could reduce accidents by 90 percent.

Less accidents would mean you would be paying a lot less for car insurance. You could be seeing an 80% discount with a self-driving car.

However, there are some disadvantages to having self-driving cars rule the road. What if the computer crashed and caused a major accident? And what would happen to people who drive for a living? Would they all lose their jobs?

What do you think?

But I would still be driving myself most of the time. That feature would be very useful when stuck in traffic, to check emails, for example.
