  1. Jim,

    I look forward to your column each week and agree with most of your opinions, but I have to disagree with you on the self driving/driverless cars. You are basing your information on Tesla when the best technology is being used by other companies without drivers with great success. For example, driverless cars using lidar combined with camera’s, GPS and internet communication with other cars can and are predicting secenarios. They can see a dear in the forest and slow or stop the car while sensing the herd that is sure to follow. In an age of distracted drivers we need driverless cars and definitely driver assist. I would love to continue this conversation and share with you the facts and details about driverless cars and trucks. P.S. I too own and drive a Tesla.
