Google Tests Driverless Car

Here's one for RCPU's Christmas list: a car that drives itself. It's Google's idea, of course, because it makes total sense that a software and search company should be developing and road-testing cars. Anyway, as a long-time Boston driver who still can't find Fenway Park without a GPS, your editor is completely in favor of this development.

But while these cars have apparently navigated some streets in San Francisco and highways in California, can they make it through the one-way streets of Cambridge, Mass., in September when students' moving vans are double-parked all over town? That'll be the real test for these machines. Chapeau, by the way, to your editor's brother-in-law, who sent this article over the weekend.
