Did many people die when cars first came out? People in cities world wide have been used to sharing streets with coaches and horses, so I wouldn’t be surprised if there were not many deaths, at least until they started getting faster than a horse…
Not the best article, but I quickly found this.
Self driving cars don’t have to be perfect they just have to be better than humans although I’m not sure why the car didn’t detect her and hit her this could be anything from a software glitch to a sensor failure but so far most of the self driving car incidents I’ve seen were due to human error.
Self driving cars or not what needs to happen is way slower speed limits. I don’t know why everyone is in such a rush to basically go nowhere. It isn’t like most employers these days give huge incentives to get to work with what they pay. The world needs to slow the heck down. Quality of life would be better.
