Back in September, Tesla released their Version 8.0 update for the company’s autopilot system, allowing their cars to see through vehicles and avoid unforeseen collisions – with both cars and pedestrians. While Tesla’s “X-ray vision” of sorts is the cutting edge of current driverless car technology, there is still a segment of the population concerned with the mass adoption of autonomous vehicles. Whether you’re on the side of technologically progressive transportation or maintaining the status quo, video has given us some stellar looks at both sides of the aisle that we can all appreciate.

Of course, hurtling down the interstate at highway speeds without a driver still gives me the creeps.

On a positive note, driverless cars will likely cut down on jerks in traffic.

On the other hand, there is something to be said for off-road capability.

Driverless car or not, we’ll probably still have to look before crossing the road.
