Maybe try it before write that? If you are from USA then Waymo already is company that has self-driving cars on street in operation.

Waymo LLC is a self-driving technology development company. It is a subsidiary of Alphabet Inc. Waymo originated as a project of Google before it became a stand-alone subsidiary in December 2016.

In April 2017, Waymo started a limited trial of a self-driving taxi service in Phoenix, Arizona. On December 5, 2018, the service launched a commercial self-driving car service called "Waymo One"; users in the Phoenix metropolitan area use an app to request a pick-up https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Waymo
It is much easier at the begining to create safe slow speed vehicles and fixed route vehicles.

A couple of things about Waymo's Phoenix experiment. First off they selected Phoenix because Phoenix is literally a desert. Good weather conditions most of the time, good road conditions and low traffic. Second off, they do put a human safety driver in their cars. When it's raining, the human takes control. When there is a pothole on the road, the human takes control. When there is a construction zone, the human takes control. When there is a complex parking lot, the human takes control. When there is anything unexpected or difficult for the car, the human takes control. While it is some impressive technology, it's not yet ready for release into the wild on its own.

The problem with "the human takes control" is that the human has nothing to do most of the time. He is effectively a passenger even though he is sitting behind the steering wheel. Then suddenly, without notice, he must put himself instantly into the mindset of a driver. That's asking a lot of human nature.

On the contrary. I was raised to listen and think and learn from others before judge them and respect elders that i benefit from(while newborns are our future who built the society for them?) and they benefit in return(symbiotic relationship)(but i am doing it also because i have heart). And i am doing it. I don't have prejudice toward anyone as long as those elderly respect me in return.

For example there were|are some famous people like Dan Pena and George Carlin and other who teach younger generations how to live but unlike some people here they do not attack people themselves but simply state and share lessons from life and argue against POVs. This is what i was|am doing. Unless i am provoced or insulted i do not use such bully methods but try to resolve conflicts peacefully.
