You might not want driverless cars, but I am part of the market also and I want them.
Not quite sure about the "threat to individual liberty" you seem to see. But, as an older guy, I see driverless cars as increasing my individual liberty. The day when someone tells me I should no longer drive may never come.
People in high cost areas can afford real houses. 2+ hours drive to work isn't nearly so painful if I can doze while the car handles traffic for me. A coffee machine that brews me a cup 15 minutes out and hands it to me is going to be the big new option.
