While I think the technology is far from there, automated cars will be the future of transportation. There's certainly a lot of arguments as to why it is unsafe currently. But I believe within the coming decades, there will be big improvements. One could imagine that a world with streamlined transportation, without the current stress of traffic jams, drunk, careless, or reckless driving would be a dream come true.
