“My Herky-Jerky Ride in General Motors’ Ultra-Cautious Self Driving Car”

NOTHING WILL MAKE you hate humans—capricious, volatile, unplanned, erratic humans—like sitting in the back of self-driving car. When I hitched a ride in one, a white and orange General Motors Cruise autonomous vehicle during a press event in San Francisco on Tuesday, every movement was a cause for alarm.
