I Thought I Saw My First Driverless Car
June 28, 2016 8:14am CST
When I was going to the hospital yesterday to visit my mom I came up behind a small car at a red light. I happened to notice that no one was driving the car and the only thing I could see on the drivers side was the head-rest. When the light turned green the car moved ahead and still it appeared as if no one was driving. At the next light the car stopped and I was making a right turn so I pulled up next to it and of course my curiosity got the better of me and I had to glance over and see if anyone was driving. There in the drivers seat was the oldest man I've ever seen who just happened to be the size of a gnome and he had a death grip on the steering wheel. He could barely see over the dashboard and I was glad that I didn't have to follow this car any further. Maybe in this case a driverless car would have worked for this guy.

@DianneN That is like my sister says if i could drive and had a license i would be a danger on the road to everybody else and myself. I am just unable to see over the steering wheel, and i admit i always have my mind on something i am reading r what i am writing. I don't think about what is around me.Plus, my sister says i trip on thin air. Which i do am always having accidents and falls.

That situation is why I am looking forward to them showing up. Eventually I will be an old driver, not just older, but old. At this time, a driverless car seems wise since we really don't have public transportation either locally or for distances.

@Marilynda1225 Good luck with that. Children often move away. Mine did. My sister's didn't, but they would not be good for transportation. They think their reason for being is to work. They leave early and don't get home until late.
I can just imagine how curious you are at first , only to be surprised to see him driving like that . But a driverless car should be invented so i can buy one and enjoy riding it without a driver . No need to learn how to drive anymore .
