The future of transportation could be closer than you think.

Newswatch 16's Ryan Leckey gave a sneak peek Tuesday morning of his special assignment that surrounds driverless cars.

Ryan teamed up with Pennsylvania's driverless car guru Roger Cohen to find out how soon we could be cruising in autonomous vehicles in our area.

Plus, Ryan also checked out some of the most high-tech vehicles on the market that are getting closer to becoming driverless.

Newswatch 16 chatted with pros from Wyoming Valley Audi in Larksville along with RJ Burne Cadillac in Scranton.

The state of Pennsylvania has several resources that explain autonomous vehicles and where the Commonwealth stands on the technology. Click here to learn more.

    This is the first step away from people actually owning cars anymore. Our freedom is on the line and people don’t even realize it.

    Think about it. Once that’s the only type of vehicle allowed on the road, and once you can no longer afford to own one, what’s to stop the owner of implementing a policy not to take you to a certain address, or allow you in with an open carry weapon? The tech giants salivate at having so much control over your life. The government types will gladly participate in that.
