Saw this today. Self driving cars are getting closer. These are in Arizona which as climate and legal adavntages, but still, its another step forward.
Waymo aka Google is going to starting to take taxi fares in Arizona USA later this year.

 

Book a taxi by an app and a car without a human driver will turn up!

With a self-driving taxi, what happens if on the ride before you, some drunk puked in it (or worse)?

 

Are they going to be fitted with vomit bags and portaloos, air-freshener?
