This thread about technology replacing jobs, and specifically the post about self-driving trucks, came to mind when I saw this news story today:

"If someone's not holding the steering wheel for 30 seconds it will automatically turn off autopilot..."

Tesla mandates that the operator keep their hands on the steering wheel at all times and always maintain control of the vehicle while utilizing the autopilot feature.

In this instance, automation may have saved lives.
And yet, the irony is, this person was commuting to their job as a driver for a delivery service!
