Tesla Motors CEO Elon Musk declared during a tech industry conference this week that human driving will eventually be outlawed.

Speaking at the NVIDIA GPU conference, Elon Musk described human driving as being "too dangerous" which is why he believes it will be banned after autonomous driving will become the norm. Speaking of driverless cars, Musk said a fully autonomous driving system might be complete in about a year from now and the technology is going "to be the default thing and it's going to save a lot of lives."

He went on to specify that although the technology has mostly been figured out, it will take approximately 20 years until autonomous vehicles will take over completely due to the large number of cars on the roads today. Musk added on Twitter shortly after the conference that Tesla "strongly in favor of people being allowed to drive their cars and always will be."

As a final note, Elon Musk told the audience at the NVIDIA GPU conference that he always drives his Tesla Model S P85D in "insane mode."
