Computerized Driving

A recent new scientist article predicted that computer assisted driving in we a feature of new cars
by 2015, in such vehicles the both the cars acceleration braking and steering can be taken over by the computer at short notice to avoid accidents. It might take a bit longer for cars that completely computer controlled, but when this happens, jobs in the delivery and haulage industry are gone forever. For those with little education, driving is a steady job that will be hard to replace. I wonder if our economy could handle that many job losses. Comments please.
