Still experimental, the era of driverless cars draws ever closer. And for many seasoned citizens, whose eyes, ears and reflexes are fading, it can’t happen soon enough.

Computer-driven cars are currently being tested in several states, so far all required to have human drivers aboard for emergency take-overs when necessary. California now allows Google, Mercedes and Volkswagen to test their driverless cars on its freeways and roads. Senior roadies who’ve been holding steering wheels carefully for many decades can look forward to enjoying the driverless cars. We’ll then be able to sit back, relax, snooze, even with our tradition of right-turn signals ever blinking. When necessary, we can wake long enough to make dramatic gestures to other driverless cars that suddenly cross in front of us.
