I was reading this article and after I finished I saw two comments below stating the posters' disagreement with this.

 

Mark Riccobono, the first blind person to drive a car, also said that "that there were still psychological barriers to overcome before people accepted the idea of blind drivers on the roads with everyone else."

 

What do you think? Should blind people drive?

I think it's a huge step forward for blind people, and for technology in general (but I hope we won't end up using an auto-pilot option for those that can drive without any extra help). This is not an auto-pilot thing for them, they still have to pay attention and make decisions during driving, the technology just helps them "read" the road. I don't know how they'll manage the road signs though... but I'm optimist they'll figure out something. I'm totally supporting this.
I apologize if it's not the most accurate article on this subject, and if someone finds a better one should post a link, because I just did a quick Google search after remembering reading an article title on another website yesterday but not reading the article because it was a sports website and I just scrolled past it.

I found another article about this.

 

And a video too. The video is really great, I wish it was longer, but it's only been a few days.
