The Main Misconception About Autonomous Cars
Are autonomous cars safer than cars now since humans really have no help in running them? I believe this is what most people worry about when they hear what autonomous cars are and I think this should be the least of their worries. Here's why.
I think people believe that autonomous cars are unsafe and that because no real human control is needed, that they are automatically labeled as less safe. From all the research and interviews I have conducted I am shocked by what I have found. People need to understand that the cars are programmed and made to follow the rules of driving one-hundred percent. Unlike humans who have hardly any patience when it comes to driving, autonomous cars will make that complete stop and will wait for their turn at a stop sign. Like I quoted before, 95% of accidents are caused by human error. The key word there is human. Although there is the possibility of a software glitch causing a problem or accident I would put my money on that being safer than a human since we put a large portion of our lives in the hands of technology now anyways.
