Top Reddit comment:

The autonomous drive in Colorado was limited to the highway, meaning truck drivers shouldn't have to worry about finding a new profession anytime soon. "The focus has really been and will be for the future on the highway. Over 95 percent of the hours driven are on the highway," Ron said. "Even in the future as we start doing more, we still think a driver is needed in terms of supervising the vehicle."

If that were true your company wouldn't be interested.

Ha: "If they don't call this service Ubeer, though, they missed a killer opportunity for a great pun."
