Self-driving cars are expected to be the wave of the future. According to a recent Florida Realtor® news article, currently there are about 7,000 self-driving cars on the roads today and within 20 years we should have 4.5 million. Yes, that’s million with an “M”.
If this prediction comes true it could impact where you live in the future. People used to judge their commute between home and office by how many miles away they were. Now more and more people are asking how many minutes away from home is their office located. If the number of self-driving cars predicted to hit the roads in the future is accurate, will people buy houses further from their work because their commute time no longer will be wasted time?
We will no longer have to sit behind the wheel and use our commuting time for focused driving.
Commute time could be spent eating, preparing for a meeting, reading, texting, shaving, applying make-up, napping and more.
Driverless cars could eliminate speeding tickets, drunk driving, eating while driving and all types of distracted driving.
You wouldn’t have to worry about taking the keys away from Grandma as she ages, she’ll no longer have to drive herself go anywhere.
It’s a very interesting concept and could change the way we live our lives. Do you think we will see 4.5 million self-driving cars on the road within the next 20 years? And if so, how do you see self-driving cars impacting your life?
