Soon driverless cars may save us from distracted drivers
from The Legal Examiner
General Motors is almost done developing a driverless car and hopes to offer the technology to the public by 2015. Google has also been developing a driverless Toyota model, which it hopes to make available just in time to give GM some competition. Because a 2006 Department of Transportation study says driver error causes 80 percent of car accidents, driverless cars would not only be more convenient, the may make the roads much safer. Technology that automatically accounts for sudden obstructions eliminates the danger of less-than-perfect drivers who were otherwise distracted or whose reflexes weren't quite quick enough. Technology, presumably, also does not get tired or start to drive aggressively when in a bad mood.
