While you are still dreaming of buying the latest 2000 series model of that Japanese car, the world all over is on the cusp of change: Self-driving cars have begun to hit the streets in the west, but think about it? Would they survive the a city full of potholes, boda bodas, taxis, narrow roads and intense traffic jam with the goal of making transportation safer? The dream of a self-driving-car future, it would seem, is becoming a reality and it’s been a long time in the making, of course expect such cars to hit our streets no pretty soon due to the poor state of our transportation infrastructure.

A steady flow of engineers have, over the years, successfully chipped away at the problem of autonomous vehicles as the requisite technology’s shrunk in scale and grown in capability. But, how can the country advance and prepare its self for this future technology? When do you think our dear nation will catch up to this unavoidable wave of the future of transportation? Would self-driving cars survive the streets of Kampala? You can hit us in our comment section below and tell us what you think.
