Tesla and GM Self-driving Cars Involved in Road Collision(s) in California, Irony Ensues

I’m not going to lie.  I clicked the headline from BBC News because I absolutely thought it was about a self-driving GM and a self-driving Tesla crashing into each other.

I want real-life Transformers as much as the next Jason Mendoza, but I don’t know.  You ever think maybe self-driving cars aren’t a great idea after all?  That maybe they’re all self-crashing cars in disguise?

Also, the GM (maybe it was the Tesla) hit a fire truck.  You’d think the machine learning for “avoid big red metal life-saver-mobile” would be fairly easy to master.  This abject failure doesn’t mean the robot apocalypse isn’t coming.  It just isn’t coming yet.
