An emergency stop button is something, but one would think there'd be some steering in case the thing's about to drive you into incoming traffic or some other dangerous situation. I'd rather take public transport than risk my life in this, to be honest.

I couldn't trust my life in this thing either. Call me a control freak, but I couldn't just sit there with no input or control mechanisms incase anything went wrong. I just find it hard to believe they could program for every possible scenario.

The only way I could see this working is in a controlled area or roadway where all the vehicles were driverless and could communicate with each other to avoid accidents.
