Both will come sooner than you expect. A human cannot beat a machine for reaction time. And remember that a million miles can be accumulated by AI driving 1,000 cars 1,000 miles each. Even at the same time. All of that experience can be accumulated.

100% with you there. It's the same reason I never gave up a manual transmission. Until I simply couldn't buy a car with one. So it will go with self-driving cars.

Again, I'm with you here. But if the car doesn't have a steering wheel, Herbie doesn't just handle your commute - it handles everything.
