Google is currently testing cars that drive themselves in California. These cars are serious about safety and could actually speed up your commute.However, would you trust Google to get you and your family to your destination safely?

Lamarr said that even though Google is in his television and phone, he is simply not ready to allow it to drive him around. The Google car has only been in one accident – when it was rear-ended by another vehicle. It has been tested on busy California streets for months now, being piloted by a man ready to take the controls at any second. The other seat is occupied by an engineer at all times, who does… uh… engineering stuff.

You may think that it won’t be safe. However, safety is the thing Google is concerned with most. Cars won’t tailgate, since they can automatically monitor distances. We could fit more cars on the road, and you may just get somewhere faster.

While sitting there, you’ll probably be inundated with videos and ads. Heck, what if you get a force-close and the car needs to restart? Yet Lamarr admits in the end that if he were to trust anyone to do this, it would be Google.

Think about it… if this were Microsoft, you’d have to worry about blue screens and literal crashes.

Would you trust Google to get you safely to your destination?
