#1 ...No. Just NO.

I see how people drive here every day on the roads, God alone knows what they'll do in the air.

#3 Drive? Hell, just watching them park.

Its so bad I think we need a phone app which lets them operated their vehicle by phone so when they are in the driver's seat, checking their phone, they can drive.

I watched a couple fancy lad try to park at a typical H grid layout and it took them 10 minutes and a number of almost collisions including with myself. Being Colorado, I could only hope they were smoked out of their mind because at that age, I was teaching myself how to do a reverse 180 with a standard and they have parents just buying them the most expensive vehicle they'd like. "I want a flying car, mum!"

#5 If they fly at one foot, the potholes wouldn’t be a problem.

#6 Still tied to runways. Vertical point to point is the way to go. Then don't need the car feature (and it's heavy weight).

#7 A few pounds could be saved by losing the turn signals. Few people in Georgia use them anyway.

#9 
If we think Gun registration is a nut.
Imagine the mental and physical background check a person with a flying car (bomb) will have to under go?
