Seems like just yesterday car giant General Motors invested $500 million in Lyft--the ride-sharing service competing with Uber for dominance over your cab experience. Like Google, Tesla, Uber and others, Lyft wants to bring its riders a driverless experience where cars pilot themselves. Now their project, according to the Wall Street Journal, has a launch window: 2017.
Sometimes taking a cab is convenient--and sometimes it's necessary. If you go out celebrating and perhaps have a few too many cocktails, then you should look for a safe ride home. Ride-sharing service Uber has already helped reduce drunk driving crashes in California, according to a recent report from Mothers Against Drunk Driving. Now, thanks to a collaboration between Uber and portable breath analysis device maker Breathometer, it's even easier to know when you should be looking for a ride.
