In theory, the people who stand to benefit the most from self-driving cars are teenage drivers, elderly drivers, tired workers and people who plan on drinking. Picture it; after having a few cocktails at a bar, it would be so easy to get into your self-driving car, press the “home” button and relax as the car transports you safely. You’re home free, right? Wrong.
