I wonder how the state will work out the Ins. here. You get into a wreck who's the blame the Village resident or a driverless car. I hope the charge the company or the owners of these driverless cars! Yea, I know in the state of FL. it's no fault. To me that BS because if your not cited for an accident, your Ins. will still go up, I know it happen to me!

Just what the villages need, now more people can get drunk and some with no clue can go where-ever the car takes them :-) They should pass a law, after a certain age people should have to take a test on the road with all the roundabouts. Also some people don't have a license but they are allowed to drive golf-cart, DUHHHHHHH, I believe TV should look at a lot of things here and stop letting the people run it. TV is not the same as it was and not getting better. my opinion, like it or not.

The Villages in San Jose, Ca also has roundabouts and golf carts, so they must have figured out that aspect. Presently, in their test in California, they don’t venture outside the Villages, so I don’t think they need to deal with gates. That might be a challenge. It’s possible Voyager would offer to upgrade the gates to also recognize window stickers. That would be awesome for all of us.

I signed up in hopes of being in their trial. They have limited the Villages which are in the first test to those around Lake Sumter. As far as I can tell it’s those between 466 and 466A.

By going through the manned gates I would guess. There are some areas that can not be reached by going through a manned gate, so I guess the cars would not go there. At least not for this test phase that we are hearing about.
