It is coming.

No doubt about it.

The self-driving Uber cars are scheduled to be in Birmingham and Mobile next month, or November at the latest.

Huntsville, of course, already has some of these driver-less automobiles.

If you feel like we are ready here in Alabama, take a look at this video below.

After watching this video, I don't know if I'm ready for cars without a driver.

What do you think?

According to this guy, Eric Schad, driverless cars are legal here in Alabama.

Eric, on the GetJerry website, explains that self-driving vehicles (trucks for example) are EXEMPTED from certain traffic laws, if they are controlled at legal speeds and have remote electronic braking.

I am sure one group is peeing their pants with excitement over self-driving vehicles.

The insurance companies.

Recently, on the official University of Alabama website, a story was posted on self-driving automobiles as it relates to GPS.

What about those times when the GPS is just plain WRONG?

Good luck with that once you are in a driverless vehicle!

That video above gives us all a really good preview of what is inevitably ON THE WAY, even here in ALABAMA!

Roll Tide!
