I was thinking about this the other day. I bet once autonomous cars become the norm and out number regular cars police will make thier ticket $$$ from autonomous check points. The cars will be randomly subject to pull over to a checkpoint area where they can question passengers, search the vehicle and find any and all reason to maintain the peace and hand out tickets. Think again before you fantasize about drinking and hitting that bong in the comforts of your car.

And then it'll go to Court, where they will immediately be ruled unconstitutional.

I'm sure you'll see a municipal tax on self-driving vehicles start popping up in most municipalities.

If SDC catch on as a subscription, rather than ownership, it'll likely be more akin to a "universal service fund" type of system, where it's a line-item on your monthly bill.
