Perhaps you’d get back into reading or maybe call a friend you haven’t spoken to in a while. Be sure to check your state’s laws before catching some zzz’s behind the wheel or partaking in any other activity to make sure it’s legal and safe.

Check out our article on the Best Self-Driving Cars. They aren’t quite ready for primetime, but there’s a good chance you’ll see them on the road in your lifetime.
