    A better question would have been: Who is at fault when a driverless vehicle is involved in a traffic fatality?


    I'm not argueing agaisnt them, I'm just stating that the odds are that eventually it will happen. It may happen far less often that with a human driver, but it will still happen. Maybe it will be because of a software glitch, or a fautly or worn componant on the vehicle, or due to road conditions that make it unavoidable. But there will have to be a way to determine fault. Waiting till it happens is the worst possible solution. Putting a framework in place that addresses the fact that the owner / operator is not in control behind the wheel is the smart thing.

    I'm all for it. Which automakers will start providing an option for an autonomous system in their vehicles? It would be like having a chauffeur drive you around. I personally could get some work done to and from work, and the same goes with other businessmen and women that end up having to drive themselves around.
