Controversially, Ralph Nader, consumer advocate, author, and former presidential candidate, discusses his skepticism when it comes to fully autonomous vehicles in the automotive industry and the many variables that come into play.

Read the transcript.

Fully driverless vehicles is just a fantasy for the next 30/40 years. There are too many variables you cannot take advantage of.
