We’re still not willing to accept the fact that one day, we might be driving around with no one in charge. On Monday, state lawmakers got to take test drives in driverless vehicles on Tryon Rd. in Raleigh. According to the NCDOT, more than 1,400 people died on NC roadways in 2016. The thought is that automation and connected cars can significantly reduce this number. One tester said, "As far as autopilot goes, I feel safer with that because it's managing the lines, and I'm able to watch the cars and hazards." Our state is currently one of the 10 states chosen as a test market. So if you’re cruising down the road tomorrow and notice no one in the driver’s seat next to you, don’t panic. You’re just getting a glimpse into the future of driving.
