VIDEO: Is Alabama Ready For “Self-Driving” Uber Vehicles?
Are we ready for this technology?
It is coming.
No doubt about it.
The self-driving Uber cars are scheduled to be in Birmingham and Mobile next month, or November at the latest.
Huntsville, of course, already has some of these driver-less automobiles.
If you feel like we are ready here in Alabama, take a look at this video below.

After watching this video, I don't know if I'm ready for cars without a driver.
What do you think?
According to this guy, Eric Schad, driverless cars are legal here in Alabama.
Eric, on the GetJerry website, explains that self-driving vehicles (trucks for example) are EXEMPTED from certain traffic laws, if they are controlled at legal speeds and have remote electronic braking.
I am sure one group is peeing their pants with excitement over self-driving vehicles.
The insurance companies.
Recently, on the official University of Alabama website, a story was posted on self-driving automobiles as it relates to GPS.
What about those times when the GPS is just plain WRONG?
Good luck with that once you are in a driverless vehicle!
That video above gives us all a really good preview of what is inevitably ON THE WAY, even here in ALABAMA!
