I would like to try one. It is probably +EV for your family because if you die in a car accident just about every jury in the world will allow a large settlement.

I've seen a bunch of driverless cars on the Strip. Not sure if they are taxis.

You are going to be very shocked when pilotless commercial airplanes are the norm. It will happen although not very soon.

While feasible, I don't think the pilot's unions or the public will allow it. I imagine it will be the norm for freight operators long before passenger jets, and the first time an unmanned jumbo jet crashes, it will be the last.

I don't think one crash would stop the program. Even if it has twice as many accidents as piloted planes in the U.S. I think it will continue. Just to be clear, I am guessing this will be nearly 50 years from now. I do believe remote piloted planes will come first. Basically commercial drones.

I'd be shocked if pilotless commercial airplanes are the norm in my lifetime...but it WILL happen eventually. Today, most pilots on commercial flights engage the autopilot about 30-60 seconds after takeoff, and don't disengage it until about a minute or two into the final approach, so for most intents and purposes we already have pilotless aircraft.

Worth concern that the vehicles passing close by me at the relative speed of +140mph might be controlled by flawed programming, even if its sensors and reaction time are far superior to that of humans. Even more concerning is the thought of those same vehicles controlled by the wetware of meat sacks that might be drunk, falling asleep, or busy sending a text message.

A few years back there was a fatal accident involving a driverless car. I was speaking with son who said (Iím making up numbers, but youíll get the concept) there is a fatal accident for every 10 million miles a human drives a car. And there was one for the driverless cars in their first 100 million miles of trials. So he said, yeah, of course heíd use a driverless car. Itís much safer. The 40,000 road fatalities donít make the news today. The 4000 that would happen in driverless cars would be daily front page news for a while.

When I was growing up there were lots of elevator operators and there were a lot of them that had handicaps. It was a career for them it was the only job they could do, open and close the elevator door all day long. But they made a living and supported families doing it. I worked in a hotel in the maintenance department for a while in the late 60s and even the staff elevator was manned by a handicapped person.

No, but we've banned many aggravating factors that increase risk of traffic injuries or deaths, such as drunk or drugged driving, distracted riving, cellphone use or texting while driving, unsafe cars, uninsured operation of a motor vehicle, minimum age and driver ed requirements to get a driver license, and others. And we do take away cars from those who breaks the rules serious enough to be judged a danger on the roadways,

I was walking across a busy crosswalk when the icon pictured walk and a female driver ran a red light and hit me

I wasn't hurt - I saw it in time and caught the car with my hands and pushed back

typical of the modern world - she didn't bother to even open her window and say she was sorry -

The same thing happened to me a few months ago. Right turn on red was allowed, so the driver must have been looking to the left to make sure no cars were coming. He must not have seen me because I was crossing from his right.

Upon getting hit, I did the same maneuver of pushing off with my hands as you did. The people in the car did not stop to ask me why I had hit their car.

Thatís a fraction of the problem. The number of totally ruined and severely diminished lives due to MVAs dwarfs the number of deaths.

I forgot the exact figures, but if an enforced speed limit was 50mph, deaths due to MVAs would plummet. We chose convenience over safety as a country. Imagine if a politician tried to propose a bill to lower the speed limit to 50 mph?

Traveling on interstates is one of the deadliest situations Americans find themselves in, so the less time they spend on them, the safer they are. Therefore, the faster one goes, the less time you are in danger. Getting hit by a car doing 60 is no deadlier than getting hit by one doing 50, or one doing 70.
However.....
Most accidents occur in the home, so the more time you spend commuting, the less time you are at home; therefore, you are safer.

More people die in their sleep than in nightclubs, so one could argue you are better off partying all night than sleeping.

I have never been in one, but the idea does not bother me. I actually think it's an improvement (and will only get better with time). The largest cause of death for people under 60 is a car-related death (either being in a collision, or a pedestrian being hit by a car), and I am sure if you factor in life-changing injuries it also the leading cause of life-changing injuries. So, it would be hard for even imperfect computers to be worse than human drivers.

The only negative is development seems to be slower than the consensus was in the early 2010s (you can read countless articles from 2012-2018 where people were convinced that by 2020 they would be common at least in certain circumstances, even if not realistic to own, but even level 3 seems to be a challenge).

A car hitting a pedestrian at fifty will be as deadly as hitting them at seventy. When NYC lowered the speed limit from 40 to 30 on secondary streets, they said getting hit at 30 you had a 50-50 chance of survival, while at forty it was close to zero, IIRC.

A person hit by a car at 30MPH has a 51% chance of survival. At 40 MPH, it is 10%. At 58MPH or above, it is 1%

. Most accidents involve cars hitting other cars. At least most that I would see in the OR. Of course a direct hit on a pedestrian at 50 would virtually always be fatal. Being sideswiped at 50 is better than being sideswiped at 70. Spinning out at 50 into a wall is better than spinning out into a wall at 70. Need I go on?

With almost 10 years as an auto insurance claims adjuster, I will say cars are safe for the most part. I have seen some horrific collisions where people have bruises and scratches and I have seen some heart breaking cases of kids killed by drunk drivers, suicides by driving head on into a semi truck, people hitting a patch of ice and car rolls down a mountain killing the entire family... My understanding is the driverless cars still have an operator that can override in an emergency situation, maybe kinda like how the plans have auto pilot.

I don't know about the mix of driverless cars with human driven cars, but I'd wager someone with computer modelling skills could design a fully automated driverless city where the traffic moved more efficiently and thereby getting to where you want to go with less delay. The traffic movement might be rather unorthodox by today's standards.

I have long maintained you will only see driverless cars in quantity driving with other driverless cars. Mixing human driving with a lot of driverless driving is asking for disaster.

if I ever see a driverless car on the street - I'm going to jump right in front of it when it's about 7 feet away from me and see if it's going to hit me

I won't actually let it hit me - if it doesn't stop I'll use my awesome all natural speed and quickness to get out of the way

my prediction - it won't stop - and it would hit me if I didn't move and if I wasn't blessed with such breathtaking agility

the insurance co. is not going to sue me because I'm not looking for money - I'm not going to make a claim

I'm looking for publicity - I want to be famous - I want to show off my moves

I want to be on national television and all over the web - like Tik Tok - and have people constantly talking about how cool I am

then I'll make money in advertising by lying about mediocre products - by saying how great they are - so all the big companies will want me to be a spokesman



I've got it all figured out - there are no flaws

I imagine a driverless city would have ďeye-in-the-skyĒ also working in tandem with gps in the car. Or at least eyes on poles.

Hereís a scenario to consider:

A baby carriage suddenly gets knocked in front of a car. A small child is nearby. The car recognizes that it canít stop soon enough, but it can swerve and avoid at least one of them.

What should it be programmed to do?

A car equipped for self-driving would have you on its camera and I'm sure the insurance company will very publicly sue the first few people who try that. Change is coming.
I've only seen one driverless car, going into Harrahs off the strip and it slowed to a crawl for the speed bumps.

Insurance companies would not sue, they would just deny for an intentional act.

I disagree. They'd call it attempted insurance fraud and pursue both criminal and civil remedy.
The difference between fiction and reality is that fiction is supposed to make sense.

The special investigative unit (SIU) would just make a referral to the state to investigate for fraud. I have never seen or heard of prosecuting for a civil remedy. If anyone else works in the insurance claims business and knows otherwise/ someone who has any recent news stories on this I would like to know since I see many questionable things but only see them get denied and SIU sends a referral to the state per compliance reasons.

if I ever see a driverless car on the street - I'm going to jump right in front of it when it's about 7 feet away from me and see if it's going to hit me

I won't actually let it hit me - if it doesn't stop I'll use my awesome all natural speed and quickness to get out of the way

my prediction - it won't stop - and it would hit me if I didn't move and if I wasn't blessed with such breathtaking agility

the insurance co. is not going to sue me because I'm not looking for money - I'm not going to make a claim

I'm looking for publicity - I want to be famous - I want to show off my moves

I want to be on national television and all over the web - like Tik Tok - and have people constantly talking about how cool I am

then I'll make money in advertising by lying about mediocre products - by saying how great they are - so all the big companies will want me to be a spokesman



I've got it all figured out - there are no flaws

So... Son of Sam laws won't interfere?

let them sue - that will make me even more famous

the BIG BAD INSURANCE COMPANIES against li'l ole me

Tik Tok will eat it up - they haven't got a prayer - Instagram will have them running away with their heads between their legs in fear of losing tens of thousands of customers



I've got this - no problem



note to Dieter - I'm not in jeopardy from the Son of Sam law because I didn't do anything criminal - all I did was expose a defective machine


I'll be a national hero - virtually untouchable

I imagine a driverless city would have ďeye-in-the-skyĒ also working in tandem with gps in the car. Or at least eyes on poles.

Hereís a scenario to consider:

A baby carriage suddenly gets knocked in front of a car. A small child is nearby. The car recognizes that it canít stop soon enough, but it can swerve and avoid at least one of them.

What should it be programmed to do?

Didn't you see I, Robot? The car will calculate which has a better chance of surviving. Then it will save Will Smith.
