After a century of needless regulation, and hundreds of thousands if not millions of violent arrests of drivers for traffic violations, the era of driverless cars is upon us.

Dozens of private firms, including Tesla, Apple, Google, GM, Honda and many others, are already producing driverless-car prototypes which are already traveling on American roadways.

There are occasional stories of crashes and near-misses (see here, for example), but driverless cars will soon be safer than human-driven cars.

When this happens, the American police state will be perplexed about how to proceed against the people.
