"...there's a great affinity between writing poetry and SF."
- Dan Simmons

No Steering Wheel Autonomous Car  
  An autonomous vehicle without a wheel for human drivers.  

As far as I know, this is the first mention of this idea.

"I want to show you something new in the way of an automobile." "Nothing new about this," laughed Babson, scornfully. "One of our best and most familiar models."

"How about the steering wheel?"

"Where is it?"

"I do not need one. Sit down and make yourself comfortable. Now watch me. We are going into traffic..."
