Couriers of the future

Could this be an insight into the couriers of the future.

You order your car or small van to turn up. You load the parcels etc on board. You then instruct it on where to go. All without a driver.

We all know that the most important component when ordering a courier vehicle is the courier driver.
Without him or her the vehicle is going nowhere.

Well take a look what Google have been up to. They have been trialling a car that drives itself.
What we can’t work out is how they managed to get permission to try it out on the public roads.
In the UK the law states the driver must have both hands on the stearing wheel at all times.

Well we think this is very interesting research that could have very serious implications in the not too distant future.

PS: This could also be the end of drink driving, that is if you were still sober enough to remember where you parked your car in the first place.
