Why it may take longer than anticipated for driverless cars

Louisiana motorists who have been following the advancements being made around driverless cars have probably noticed that many of the world's most innovative companies, like Google and Tesla, have been working nonstop to turn these vehicles into reality. In fact, Google's driveless car project, called Waymo, already has more than 3 million miles under its belt.

There are many potential benefits to driverless cars. These vehicles could dramatically reduce the number of individuals killed on the nation's roads every year. They also cannot drink and drive or drive while being distracted. Because they are more accurate than humans, they can drive closer together. This means that the roads that have already been built can accommodate more vehicles while still minimizing the traffic jams. Many experts believe that by 2040 or 2050 at the latest, 100 percent of all vehicles will be autonomous.

However, there are also certain reasons to suggest that autonomous vehicles may take longer to arrive . It may take some time for the regulations and laws to catch up. There may be debates over who will be held liable for car accidents caused by the autonomous vehicles. Further, there are also ethical questions that need to be answered, such as what the vehicle should do if it is put in a situation where someone will be hurt.

As it stands now, the vast majority of motor vehicle accidents are caused by human error. In most cases they are due to the negligence of one or more motorists, although some are caused by defective parts. A person who has been injured in a collision caused by another driver, such as one who was speeding or impaired, might want to have legal help when attempting to negotiate a settlement with the at-fault motorist's insurance company.
