Americans are asking legislators in the United States to put on the brakes when it comes to allowing driverless cars to be built without any human controls. As many as 87% of Americans hope that self-driving cars will always have a human inside who can take control in the event of emergencies.
That’s according to research released by the Pew Research Center. However, legislators in Congress are still moving forward with allowing cars to be built that have no human controls. Furthermore, Congress is prohibiting states from restricting this technology.
Up to 83% of Americans want driverless vehicles to have dedicated lanes on the road. Despite these statistics that indicate that Americans are not yet comfortable with driverless cars, up to 40% of people say they are excited about the potential with the industry. Driverless cars are not yet a reality for most people but they do hold promise in reducing the number of accidents caused by human error.
The vast majority of vehicle accidents on the road today are caused by human error whether that is drunk driving, distracted driving, drowsy driving or aggressive driving. When someone else’s negligence causes an accident that leads to severe injuries, this could be used to file a personal injury lawsuit with the help of a San Diego attorney.
