LETTER: Hard to put faith in driverless cars

WHY do they want to introduce driverless cars if it isn't to increase company profits by reducing the number of workers?

Or is it because they can?

My experience with computers and service providers is that they are problematic and not always reliable.

Technology has its failings, and this is what they want to replace drivers.

We need to first see good reliability before going down the road with driverless cars, and putting profits before lives.

If the technocrats think people are going to rush out and buy computer driven cars they are mistaken.

How many really want to trust their life to a computer?
