What should a passenger do when they simply don't feel like driving, still need to travel but want to feel more secure in a car?
In a recent survey from Insurance.com, 22.4 percent of responders would be OK with purchasing a vehicle that didn't require driver input. However, there's another 24.5 percent who just aren't sold on the idea. One of the biggest reasons for self-doubt is concern about safety from a robotic vehicle.
Technology and the automotive world have done a lot to make driving more convenient: cruise control, smartphone GPS systems, antilock brakes, self-parking, traffic jam assistant apps and even GasBuddy mobile apps helping out with travel expenses.
But the one downside of self-driving cars is that they don't quite mesh with human driving habits yet, according to Bloomberg News. Auto accidents continue to happen between self-driving cars and human drivers, primarily because unlike humans, self-driving cars can't quite guesstimate that one driver who will swerve into the wrong lane, speed up or stop abruptly. Veteran drivers are already equipped to handle making those last-minute decisions.
So what should drivers do when they need to get to their destinations, may not want to drive all of the time but just haven't joined the self-driving bandwagon of excitement?
Chauffeurs from ShowFore are licensed, trained and ready to hit the road to get our customers to their destinations on their time and in a timely manner. No need to worry about directions. Our tech savvy drivers have already pre-planned and compared the destinations using our GPS smartphones and checking for any signs of construction, roadblocks and possible delays.
Texting while driving? Unnecessary. Business travelers can text away. We'll drive. Need to make phone calls and worried about hands-free devices? Use those hands to make business calls. Leave the driving hands up to ShowFore's chauffeurs.
Our drivers have a solid driving background, and our goal is to get business professionals to their workplace destination on time. Need to make a few stops for company meetings? In need of a driver who can be ready to go from point to point or find available street parking while the business professional handles meetings upstairs? No worries. ShowFore is designed to accommodate all of those requests.
Whether it's drop-offs, pick-ups, lunch hours, appointments, gas stops, or going to and from the airport or train, ShowFore's chauffeurs are ready to work with the busy worker.
No need to worry about valid auto insurance or whether the car will be available on a particular day. Why? Because ShowFore's chauffeurs will handle all of the traveling details from the comfort of the customer's car.
Utilizing the customer's vehicle means the customer will already be in a trusted automobile, get to pack and unpack whatever is needed before the chauffeur gets to the home, skip trying to memorize the license plate of unfamiliar taxis and onetime drivers, and will already know what the vehicle looks like each time it pulls up.
What ShowFore's chauffeurs offer that a self-driving vehicle just can't do is offer business travelers the chance to drive when they want to. And when they don't? ShowFore takes the wheel.
