In the evolving scenery of self-driving taxis in San Francisco, an unexpected trend has emerged: passengers are getting frisky in the backseat of driverless taxis. With no human driver to pass judgement, it seems the added privacy is encouraging some to engage in intimate activities during their automated journeys.
As reported by the San Francisco Standard, passengers are taking advantage of this newfound freedom, using their driverless rides as an opportunity to run wild. While the anecdotes may elicit chuckles, they shed light on the potential consequences of autonomous vehicles on passenger behaviour. With no human driver to focus on the road, passengers are free to engage in a variety of activities. Privacy concerns also come into play, as some self-driving taxi companies record video inside the vehicle for safety purposes. This raises questions about how data related to intimate encounters may be handled and whether it could lead to consequences for those involved.
