What is the definition of having a "Right to drive" or other "Rights" as to opposed to having a "Privilege to drive" or other "Privileges"
Liberty, is the compromise on total freedom. Which is your right only go as far as interfering in my rights. So with liberty comes responsibility, you have to be responsible with your actions and to know if your effecting someone else. A 7 year old does not have that sense of reponsiblity. By the way, you can say that your going to kill someone. I hear it all the time, but if there is some action behind it, then you are interfering with someone else's rights. You are also not forbidden to yell fire in a crowded theater, if no one gets hurt and no one panics, your fine. But even if someone gets hurt and everyone panics, but there really was a fire, I'm sure your fine as well.

Greg, you don't need permission to use a right. Do you need permission to speak or write, to practice your religion, etc... Since we don't have total freedom, we are suppose to haveLiberty. Liberty is that you can do whatever, as long as you don't infringe on the rights of others. Other words, your rights can't stop someone else from using their rights and vise versa.

Sebastian Thrun: Google's driverless car
No, there is no other rights that I can think of that you NEED a license. A license means you can't do such thing, unless approved by..... In this case government. Which is not true, I can drive many things without a drivers license. I do believe this driver-less technology is a gods send. It will change transportation forever, while making it safer on the roads. Technology like this might make it possible to eliminate one car to save on expenses. Car drives husband to work, drives back to house by itself, picks up wife and drives her to work. It can later pick up the kids from school and drive them home or to a kid friendly environment. Car could also use sensors to keep tabs on the kids, if like at a play ground, and dail 911 if need to. The insides of cars can be changed radically, such as the front seats and back seats can face each other with maybe a table in between. A place where family, business, etc... can have better conservations, or like a dining room on wheels. Beds could be inter graded in to cars more, so we can sleep and travel at the same time. The trucking industry will have some of the biggest changes, with no more needs for truck drivers, or cab drivers. What will happen with all the jobs? Yes thoses in trucking and cab will probably lose them, but it gives the human race such an advantage to create new technologies and new things humans would want to do. With more man hours available, just about anything could happen. I've have been hearing about this technology being used on tractors for farming. Food production would increase 10 fold and while prices drop to next to nothing.

You do have the right to travel / movement. Courts have proven that. If you don't have that right, then you can be somewhat jailed without doing any crimes. Just because you have the right to travel, do not give you the right to trespass on someone else's property. And for the record, driving is not a privilege, the cops and government just want you to think that and you fall right into their trap. I know a few people that drive without driver licenses and with no licenses plate. They win court battles over it all the time.
