Are Automated Vehicles Safe?

Are Automated Vehicles Safe?

According to the National Highway NHTSA, self-driving vehicles will be a reality in the U.S. by 2025. Industry experts believe fully automated cars could be a safer alternative since 94% of car accidents are caused because of human error. Automated vehicle testing has been in the works for several years. Even newer cars are equipped with technologies like lane assist and emergency braking to keep drivers safe. However, even with new and improved technologies, people still get injured and killed due to negligence.

Automated Vehicle Safety

While a driverless vehicle may be a safer option, it is not foolproof. Technology can fail. A woman was struck and killed by a self-driving Uber test car in 2018. Many car accidents have occurred while drivers put their vehicles on autopilot or self-driving. If you are injured by a driverless vehicle that failed to operate properly, you should contact a personal injury lawyer to learn more about your rights.

What Safety Measures Are Supplied in Automated Vehicles?

  • Automated vehicles are supplied with advanced technologies to reduce the number of accidents. This will also lead to fewer deaths and injuries.
  • Because the system will not be operated by humans, it will react faster and make better choices while driving.

Although technology experts believe that automated vehicles will help reduce accidents in the future, accidents are still occurring every day. Whether you were injured by a driver on autopilot or a negligent driver, you are entitled to seek compensation.
