As a city dweller, I still have problems getting around without using a car if my direction of travel cuts across the grain. i.e. my journey doesnt require me to go to the city centre. But electric driverless cars will be the answer and I cannot wait for it to happen. Less pollution, less street junk (cars), no insurance outlay or cleaning....I could go on.
If ours is an age in which no end of institutions and conventions are being disrupted, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that one of the most basic features of everyday life seems under serious threat. If you are fortunate enough to live in a house with a drive, look outside and you will probably see it: that four-wheeled metal box, which may well be equipped with every technological innovation imaginable, but now shows distinct signs of obsolescence.
