Think about how easy it will be to disable an autonomous truck. A kid with spray paint can spray the optical sensors and it’s dead in the street.

Hmm...a new business opportunity. I’ll charge $200+ service call to go out and clean it up and get it going again. Do that three or four times a day and I’m SET!

Do you have a link about the 2025 date you posted?


Not too long ago I came across an article from 2015 that said Autonomous trucks will be here in five years.

Here we are in 2021 and it didn't happen.

I think the OP is blowing smoke.

I’m with pack and old school here life changes everyday don’t be scared of anything I have my moments too but at the end of the day I’m not afraid of nothing !! But failing!!! And the only way you fail is if you never try!!!

Remember "The Mayan Calendar" scare several years ago?

Remember the "Y2K" scare?

Remember "The Killer Bees" scare from the mid-1970s?

My only worry is what will we fall for next?
