I took a lap this afternoon around one of those San Francisco intersections that folds in on itself in more than the usual amount of directions, and felt a little shiver go up my spine at the sight of a driverless car waiting in traffic for a green light, different than the other mapping-app cars.

A driverless Cruise car, a compact white four door sedan with a roof almost completely covered in cameras and mounted sensors, waits for a green light Friday, May 5, 2023 in northbound Portrero Avenue lanes at Division Street in San Francisco, California. On sidewalks behind and beyond the car, blue plastic sheeting and thin metal poles tied to gray nylon fabric show separate tents unsheltered city residents have set up.
