“Well, there goes that Google car again without its driver.”

Sure, it could happen. But could it happen in Colorado? According to one website, it’s possible.

Google recently revealed its prototype driverless car. The car wouldn’t have a steering wheel, gas or brake pedals. The car would navigate through sensors and computing power. (wow!)

According to VB News, legislation in Colorado is looking at the possibility of a driverless car. A handful of states allow such cars, including California.

If you ask me, it’s about time we have cars without drivers. It makes sense because all the movies set in the future have some type of car on the streets without somebody behind the wheel. Usually someone is inside, either sleeping or eating dinner, while the smart car zooms around.

However, I didn’t think Google was going to lead the driverless car charge. Why not Google? The Google cars are all over the place, taking pictures of you, me and your dog.

I don’t know about you but I’d be creeped out if I pulled up next to a driverless car.

Here, read the full story to learn more about the wonders of driverless cars.
