Here's The Hilarious Reason Officials Are Concerned About Self-Driving Cars


Anyone who was eagerly awaiting the revolutionary technological developments promised in "Back to the Future Part II" was horribly disappointed last October when we finally reached the date Marty McFly arrived in the future only to discover we still live in a world without flying cars and mass market hoverboards.

Nike did figure out how to make shoes that tie themselves, but we're still a while away from living in a world where everything floats and the Cubs figured out a way to win the World Series.

Of course, most major changes in technology don't happen overnight, and scientists and engineers are doing what they can to finally usher us into the future "The Jetsons" promised us so many years ago.

Over the past few years, Google, Tesla and other automobile manufacturers have been working on making self-driving cars the new standard, although it will probably be a while until most people start to embrace automation (some have a harder time adjusting than others).

These developments have been instituted with varying degrees of success, but some experts are concerned about a danger that comes with self-driving cars that has been overlooked until now: an increase in the number of people having sex in the car while it's driving.

According to the CBC, government officials in Canada are concerned giving people the ability to do things besides driving while in their cars will lead to an increase in certain recreational activities traditionally reserved for people who are about to be murdered in a horror movie.

Barrie Kirk, executive director of the Canadian Automated Vehicles Centre of Excellence, reportedly said,

It would appear officials are worried drivers are overestimating the abilities of the current generation of "self-driving cars." While most companies are confident in their technology, they also admit it's not infallible, which can be worrisome when people are reportedly brushing their teeth and reading a newspaper behind the wheel.

In conclusion: You can still have sex in your Tesla, but you'll probably want to park it in a secluded area first.
