    I live in Tucson .. This Chinese owned company is a joke and if it ever does happen, I don't see them being the ones to standardize the technology .

    You used to see a driver and two Chinese engineers riding .. Now there's usually just a driver hauling freight or empty trailers from Walmart or Amazon in between Tucson <-->Phx with the occasional Las Vegas run

    I have friends that drove for them.. they pay you well , provide food and you sleep in a hotel when away from home ! While the truck is guarded but it seems like mostly propaganda at this point

    Elon Musk on the other hand ; He worries me

    I would love to see a driverless truck try to fuel up.
    Or pull into and park at a truck stop when the weather got too bad.

    I wonder how many driverless trucks will go up a dirt mountain road during a road closure because truck gps routed them that way. Or stop on the road like a deer in the headlights when something happened in front of them that flag men are routing you around lol..

    I love that beer, but how does the formaldehyde content compare to San Miguel?

    That is excellent beer made with Canadian grain...premium lager...if you can't have TsingTao with your Asian cuisine root beer also pairs well.
