The world is growing, in population, in inspiration, and in innovation. Inventions of new magnitude are being formed in the minds of people every day, and now they are taking to the streets. One of the latest and most intriguing of these inventions is that of self-driving cars, vehicles can now drive themselves. In the present time, few of these cars freely run the roads, but it will not stay that way forever. One day, these cars will roam the streets. What will be the effects of these as we go forward? There are too many to name them all, but three effects come out in importance above the rest: job expansion and decrease family life, and new inspiration. However, we must also consider the cons of this expansion.
The first great effect would be how it would affect our jobs. On the surface level, many new jobs would be created in manufacturing and maintaining this new kind of car, also there would be many people put out of business as taxi drivers, truck drivers, pizza delivery and so forth. However, on another level, this will revolutionize nearly all other jobs that require work outside the official work area. When the Internet was put into effect, the home could be the new workplace, but now, the car can be the new workplace. Without the need for us to put our focus on the road, we can put our focus on working whilst riding. Because travel time takes away from work time, people had to account for that when defining work hours, but now they do not have to, now they can have fewer work hours at the office because they spend time working en route. Self-driving cars will revolutionize the general working and middle-class jobs.
Self-driving cars will also revolutionize family life. Car rides with big or medium sized families are characterized by the parents trying to keep their rowdy fighting kids quiet, but not anymore. These cars will allow parents freedom to sleep or play with their children during this time. More than just car rides, cross country vacations will be much faster consider people do not have to sleep, the car can simply drive itself while they are asleep. Family life will be greatly changed, people can “drive” younger, parents simply strap in the twelve-year-old, program the car for the store, and they can buy the groceries or any other errand like mail, etc.
Not only will self-driving cars change jobs, workplaces, and family life, it will greatly change each individual. People will see and realize what machines are capable of, what the human mind is capable of creating, and people will come up with new ideas, for new machines that can do similar functions. Machines that can fly themselves, robots to run various errands, and a new program for more complex actions and reactions. A new age will arise of a new generation of inventors with ideas to reshape the world and maybe even expand beyond it.
These effects have so far been very positive, very possible, and very uplifting. However, this is not always going to be the case, with every blessing comes a price and a curse. Because people have many tasks done for them, people may become even more lazy, complacent with the world around them. Driving takes discipline, skill, humility, and other qualities, but if people are not driving, they do not have to have those skills. People do not have to do all of the tasks that they had to before and therefore do not appreciate what they get out of it as much.
