The First Look at How Google's Self-Driving Car Handles City Streets - Eric Jaffe - The Atlantic Cities

Excerpt from an extensive article

"I asked Urmson when he'll consider the car a success. "I think it's a success when people are using it in their daily lives," he says. "When we have cars out there and people are moving around and we have statistical data that says we're saving more lives than had these people been driving themselves. The first time somebody who doesn't work for Google is riding in one of these cars, getting to Grandma's house or to work in the morning, or moving when they couldn't otherwise move around the city, that'll be a huge day for us. There'll be lots of little wins between here and there, but that's the big one.""
