A Lakewood car accident attorney discusses some recent findings about self-driving cars.
For at least six years, some prominent companies – including Google and various automakers – have been working on developing self-driving or autonomous vehicles. While these vehicles are still in the testing phase, they have garnered a lot of attention, especially from researchers who are focused on answering the question titling this blog – are self-driving cars safer than standard passenger vehicles?
Currently, it seems like the preliminary answer to this question would be yes. We’ll point out some facts supporting this conclusion below…
These facts, however, should be considered cautiously, some say. That’s because self-driving cars are still very new and have yet to be driven as much as standard vehicles (which rack up about 2 trillion miles on U.S. roads annually) in similar real-world conditions (where poor roads, adverse weather, and other factors commonly cause complications).
