Quote of the Week

Driverless cars (again) – Google gets it on car ownership.

“Google….looks at our motorised world and sees that we spend fortunes on the purchase, upkeep and operation of cars that are usually driven by a single human, spend a good deal of their time immobilised in urban congestion, and much of the rest of the time parked in streets. They see governments and local authorities driven to distraction, if not to bankruptcy, by the costs of providing roads and infrastructure to support our motoring habit. They see the mortality, environmental and health costs of human-controlled automobiles. And they think: this is nuts.”

(And a great way to make loads of money.)

John Naughton, The Observer, 1.6.14
