    New jersy state is testing these cars, and they require a driver to seat behind the wheel at all times to take over the controls in the event of a technology failure or emergency

    Right, just like with airplanes, taking 95% of the control out of human hands is the easy part. It's that last 5% that will take some leaps of technology and faith.

    But with $75,000 plus in training, testing and licensing behind him/her. Not to mention the 1500 plus hours required to be a "fail-safe." :)

    Most commercial flying is not done in an aircraft with an autopilot exotic enough to remove the pilot.

    Not too many people are willing to pay 7 times the usual price for a good or service unless there is a real good reason. Particularly if they can wait.

    I guess this Tuesday the price of candy and roses will surge, but guys figuring out how to postpone meeting their gal for Valentines Day until the 15th because they had to "work late" or some other reason will gt bargains.

    It only makes sense that massive increases in price would be very transient.
