Who's Driving That Car

Can you image driving a car and text messaging at the same time? Or how about driving while watching movie?
Too dangerous you say?
Maybe not...Google has been working on a self-driving car for several years now and the company now wants to take it to the real road.
But what real road? Where?
Google is asking Nevada officials to be the first state to legalize the use of self-driving cars. But this requires new legislation, so Google is lobbying Nevada law makers to change/pass a law to make its revolutionary vehicle legal.
You might be thinking...What are they crazy? A car without a driver. That's not safe.
But google has test driven its self-driving car for over 140,000 miles... and the attorney lobbying the Nevada state legislature for google states that its robotic car is safer than a car driven by a human.

Below is a video of a google self-driving car.
