Hmmm…

However, the kinds of fully self-driving cars that Google is now testing could represent a much bigger change. If a driver can’t manipulate a car in any way (except maybe to press a “stop” button) most crashes will probably result in product liability claims…

At what point does a “bad” crown made by a CAD CAM device go from human error to product liability?

I found this even more interesting. Car sharing has had limited success, but:

By contrast, a service that lets you summon cars without drivers to wherever you are and have them take you where you want to go could replace automobiles for many people.
