Had to leave a comment on (yet another) stealth ad video about self driving cars..

"While you US guys keep making sleek payed advertising clips for (self-driving) cars, the rest of the world had enough of cars, full stop. Self driving cars are still cars - dangerous, polluting, city destroying, loud metal boxes mostly filled with air - Highly inefficient legacy methods of transportation. A future worth aspiring to are cities free of all cars: Cities for people, not machines. The Europeans and even more so the Chinese have gotten the message, tripling down on high speed trains instead, which have a far superior space utilization profile than any car will ever have. Think bicycles, remote-working and walkable cities - not even more cars with just with some AI magic on-top which takes away the last few driver jobs (Uber & co) from people who are already struggling to make a living."
