I would want to steer clear of UPS trucks that have dark windshields in the future:

How do you feel about these vehicles sharing the roads you regularly travel?

And you really have to ask yourself, "Why?"

This makes me nervous, not completely confortable.

A self-driven cab ran down a pedestrian in California.  Pedestrian's fault, but a human driver may have read something in the persons face that made them slow down.  The car didn't.


Besides in-service malfunctions:

I'm concerned that the computer-controlled trucks could be hacked by someone who loads them with explosives and drives several of them into "targets" at the same time - before anyone could react and shut them down.

Will Highway Patrol be given the ability to disable trucks that are going all rogue like in a Stephen King movie?

Lots of questions.

The person's face? How 'bout your face reading that you are about to run somebody down?  ;D

Just the latest example of technology replacing people. Once all the jobs have been taken over by automation, how will people earn money to buy the things they produce?
You knew the job was dangerous when you took it, Fred.

Oh, I really don't foresee ANY problems with this at all (said he, with sarcasm dripping from every pore).

I would have thought agoraphobia, judging by recent posts.
