My guess is that Phooey is 15 years old and is terrified that by the time he is old enough to drive, he won't be allowed to because all cars will be autonomous. He's never claimed to be an adult. The fact that new technology takes time to become ubiquitous, and there will be a long lag between the first availability of autonomous cars and the disappearance of human-driven cars means that his fear is unfounded.

"Sad, really, since he was relatively polite until fairly recently. "

So sad...

Contrary to popular belief, it is possible for a 15-year old to be polite.

I am sure your mother is a lovely person.

But what about flying cars?

What about them? We've had them for years, but they're not practical for most people to own and use regularly. Once self-driving technology is mature enough, I'm sure it will be applied to flying cars and the cost of ownership will come down. A bit.
