What do you think about self-driving cars?

Asked in downtown Mountain View. Pictures and interviews by Nick Veronin.

"I think they're better than drones!"

Charlotte Coqui, Mountain View

"I like the idea of self-driving cars. I hate driving. I would like someone to drive for me. The idea of not having traffic (due to) self-driving cars is pretty cool."

Bez Morid, San Jose

"I think it's a concern for me, relying too much on technology. With people being alert and aware (behind the wheel) we still have accidents happening. I can't imagine what it would be like not to have a driver. I really don't support it."

Madhavi Ganti, Sunnyvale

"I guess self-driving cars are pretty cool. At least there would be no traffic accidents."

Michel Tu, San Francisco

"My concern about driverless cars is, who's responsible if there's an accident? If someone is drunk and in the car and trying to get home from the bar and there's an accident, who's responsible?"

Dave Lacy Kusters, San Francisco
