No driver? No problem.
Are you ready for your morning commute to get a whole lot easier?
Because self-driving cars are the way we’ll get around in the future, and not as in the distant future—we’re talking, like, in a few months, according to Google.

Don’t worry—the cars will have safety drivers during the tests and their speed limit will be capped at 25 miles per hour, but this is a pretty huge step forward, and should things move in this direction, soon you’ll be able to read the morning news while your car drives itself to the office.
