Excellent news: more Congressional endorsement of the developing self-driving cars industry.
We are one-step closer to removing humans completely from the driving process.
A House panel on Wednesday backed legislation designed to allow automakers to increase the testing of self-driving cars on U.S. roads.
The bill would let automakers deploy up to 100,000 self-driving vehicles without meeting existing auto safety standards, a move designed to boost testing of new technology. The current cap for such exemptions is 2,500. The bill would also require manufacturers to report information about all crashes involving the exempted cars and give the Transportation secretary authority to halt the exemptions for any manufacturer if a defect is discovered.
“We want aggressive oversight of the industry, but with the flexibility needed to test and generate the safest and most affordable technologies possible,” said Rep. Greg Walden, R-Ore., the chairman of the House Energy and Commerce Committee, which could take up the bill as early as next week.
A subcommittee approved the bill by voice vote. The full House would not act on the bill until September at the earliest, giving lawmakers more time to work out changes designed to increase support for the measure.
A top priority for lawmakers and the automotive industry is to limit states on regulations. Generally, the federal government regulates the vehicle while states regulate the driver.
The bill would prohibit any state or municipality from imposing its own laws related to the design and construction of self-driving cars.
Federal officials say 94 percent of auto accidents are caused by human error, so self-driving technology has the potential to save thousands of lives and improve the mobility of many elderly and disabled Americans.
So, this is happening now. Self-driving cars are already working perfectly, and the last step is simply to test them and get them on the road. Safe streets for everyone and you can text while driving.
Ultimately, cars can be set up as mobile living rooms and offices, where you just climb in, give your destination and then sit down and chill. There won’t be any more need for the driver’s seat. It will just be a room. There won’t be any more accidents, so there won’t be a need for seatbelt laws, so you can basically just have a sofa in there and watch TV while you ride (or read, but I can’t read in a car at all, personally – I get a headache).
Most importantly: you’ll be able to get completely wasted and not worry about having to either go to jail or deal with some filthy Paki taxi driver.
All in all, this is going to be a massive leap in the way society functions.
This is Why We Need More Syrian Refugees
What we need to understand here is that it isn’t just individual’s cars that are going to be taken out of the equation: it’s the entire trucking industry.
And you know what that means?
There is going to have to be an entire industry built around repairing these trucks.
And who is going to work those jobs?
We need Syrian refugees, who we can train to help do maintenance on these trucks. The self-driving car revolution is going to cause a massive industry to explode, and we just don’t have the manpower for it.
Granted, there are 3.5 million truckers in this country who are going to be put out of work. But those people are mostly white, and going to be too stupid to learn the needed skills to repair the high-tech systems of self-driving trucks.
There are approximately 3.5 million professional truck drivers in the United States, according to estimates by the American Trucking Association. The total number of people employed in the industry, including those in positions that do not entail driving, exceeds 8.7 million. About one of every 15 workers in the country is employed in the trucking business, according to the ATA. These figures indicate that trucking is an exceptionally stable industry that is likely to continue generating jobs in the coming years.
Nobody tell that guy! I wanna see his face when he finds out!
The more automation we have, the more immigrants we’re going to need from the third world.
We already have tens of millions of nonwhites currently living on welfare because there simply aren’t enough high-tech jobs for them, but it’s not going to be enough. The automation revolution means we need tens of millions of new Syrian refugees from places like Pakistan, Afghanistan, Eritrea and El Salvador.
Whites really screwed up by not having enough babies right when the automation revolution was happening, so we have to replace them with people from anywhere (anywhere except Europe, South Africa and Australia).
Is the “automation means we need more brown immigrants” meme overly convoluted or confusing?
Is this something that should just be played straight?
The thing is, it is so ridiculous that I have a hard time playing it straight. I think if I did I would just fly into a rage. Everyone knew that the automation revolution was coming and that it was going to gut roughly 50% of jobs. This wasn’t something that was controversial. No one was saying it wasn’t going to happen. And yet they still just kept telling us that we needed more brown people because white women stopped having babies.
In fact, even at present white birthrates, there would be extremely high unemployment by the 2030s even if there was not a single brown person in any of our countries. Right now, by 2030 we’re going to be 65% nonwhite/nonyellow, and pretty well 0% of those people will be able to work in that coming economy. And what are they going to do? Well, they’re going to sit around committing crimes and having sex.
At what point will the concept of white people existing simply to serve a massive population of nonwhite parasites – ostensibly because we have a moral responsibility, due to alleged actions by white people before we were born – become so insane that no one is able to take it seriously?
