    No, genius. The first time the towing vehicle slows down or stops, it's going to get rammed by the vehicle being towed.

    what everybody here even have forgotten is how on earth is a driverless vehicle going to steer it's self as well as the need for somebody to operate the brakes.

    At some point you would have a good chance of the driverless car trying to ether over take you or at the very lest running along side the towing vehicle.

    As well as the remarked upon rear end shunts every time you brake

    Do you lack any common sense?

    Sure dumbass, but expect damage to both vehicles. Either you're extremely ignorant or you are trolling. Either way - FAIL.

    As long as you don't have to stop or go downhill.

    All the other reasons listed before mine and you will damage the transmission if the car has an automatic transmission.

    It's against the law to tow a vehicle with a rope even if another person is in that car.

    No since you will surely damage both cars.

    Yes if the journey  is uphill or the tow rope is small enough to prevent a collision but otherwise no.

    how do you expect the towed car to stop or slow down when using just a rope?  Gonna wait until it rear-ends you?
