GM Follows Boeing 737Max Plan

It's not a surprise that GM does really, really, stupid things.  What IS a surprise is that shareholders don't revolt, complete with pitchforks and rope.

General Motors faces pushback over its request that U.S. regulators waive some automobile safety standards to make it possible to deploy a ride-sharing fleet of driverless cars without steering wheels or other human controls.

GM first made the request for a two-year temporary waiver on features like mirrors, dashboard warning lights and turn signals designed for a human driver in a petition filed with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration in January 2018....

Sure.  Let's remember that the 737Max airplane was also a "self-driver," with human over-ride blocked.
