Google Lobbies Nevada to Pass Robot Car Bill

Ed Oswald in a Technologizer piece:

Google is lobbying the Nevada legislature to pass legislation that would make it the first state to allow the operation of robotically controlled cars on its roads.

And:

How do you feel about this? Would you give up the pleasure of driving — your fahrvergnügen as VW so famously sloganed in the 1990s — to a computer? Are we becoming too lazy? I’d like to hear your opinions.

In answer to the question, a qualified yes. Once the technology was proven and stable I would yield control of my vehicle to the computer driver as long as I could grab control back at any time and could see into what said driver was processing.

This would allow me to reclaim even more time for productive tasks.
