I always love this formulation in news stories.

Experts expect self-driving cars to bring many benefits, chiefly curtailing the 1.25 million lives lost globally each year in motor vehicle crashes. But there will also be downsides, some of which may be tough to foresee. Most obvious is the disruptive impact on people who make a living driving today.

Anyway, call me in about 30 years if I'm still alive and we can discuss whether we think the just-around-the-corner self-driving cars will make things safer...
