Each week, the Observer-Reporter asks Facebook friends to respond to a question about an issue in the news. This week, we asked,

“Would you ride in a self-driving car?”

Tracy Nelson Horne Nope! I gotta be in control!

Matthew Ridge Moorman Yes, I don’t know why we set the bar so high as long as they are better than human drivers.

Nicolas Borovich Absolutely. At first, I’d like sit behind the wheel, in case I needed to take control, but eventually I’d be comfortable allowing the car full control. Would give us more time to get work done on the way to work or school.

Mark McCune No way would I trust one.

Peggy Midler Absolutely not.

Ian Bish Yes, absolutely. Condition would be I’d have to have some form of emergency control if needed.
