Google’s self driving car could enable my independence

If you watch the video above, you’ll see that Google put a blind person behind the wheel of a self driving car. This is amazing. Being blind myself, I will never be able to drive. I will always have to depend on someone else if I need to go to the store or to an appointment. I could take public transportation, but that’s only available in cities mostly (where I live currently doesn’t have much public transportation).
If Google could make these cars mainstream, I would probably try to get one as soon as possible. The only issues I could see would be liability issues and potentially issues with the sensors causing accidents and such, but accidents would be much less common with self driving cars (especially if every car was self driving and could communicate with each other).
