One day your only choices will be to own a self driving car, or to pay $2000 a month in insurance premiums.

That line only works with guns, man. Driving is a privilege. Nobody has to come to your house and take away your driving privilege. They can revoke that shit through the mail. Which is exactly what happens if you get caught too many times driving uninsured after refusing to pay the rates. I'm sure human drivers will be easy targets for cops too.

When insuring a car costs more than a car payment on a driverless, it will put a lot of financial stress on people to make the switch. Society will shame those who don't make the switch, calling them dangerous and reckless. "Think of the children" arguments will be made.

I'm not saying it will be pretty. I'm just making sure you know.
