    The article refers to the journal "Annals of Tourism Research". Is that like travelling the islands of Greece?
    Even though there are days I wish I could change some things that happened in the past, there’s a reason the rear view mirror is so small and the windshield is so big, where you’re headed is much more important than what you’ve left behind.

    I would never own a hybrid or anything self driving.If I want to drive 1100 kilometers I dont want to stop to charge up.Nor would I want my truck driving me.I want the control and I even prefer a manual transmission.

    If there is a computer in it, running it, sure enough the computer can get hacked. So a killer bot can be inserted and wham-O you just did 100 to 0 in .03 seconds when the hacked car drives your car into a wall...

    Also for public safety there would be police overrides on the vehicles..

    For public taxis, security cameras, just like on that porn site 'fake taxi"..

    Not often that I agree with SR (lol) but I’m 100% in agreement on this one!

    It’ll be a sad day indeed when auto manufacturers stop making manual transmissions. Even paddles aren’t the same thing and most sport cars only offer paddles already.
