DRIVER­LESS VE­HI­CLES

Owner Driver - - Owner / Driver -

Ar­ti­fi­cial in­tel­li­gence has been much in the me­dia of late, es­pe­cially re­plac­ing driv­ers with driver­less ve­hi­cles.

Gov­ern­ments are go­ing to have to come to grips with ques­tions re­gard­ing in­sur­ance.

Who will be re­spon­si­ble when an au­to­mated ve­hi­cle has an ac­ci­dent? Will in­sur­ance com­pa­nies try and es­cape their li­a­bil­ity be­cause no hu­man was at the wheel?

Con­sumers will have to know their rights and li­a­bil­ity be­fore they take on a driver­less ve­hi­cle.

There are a lot of ques­tions need­ing an­swers be­fore peo­ple rush to the sale yards and buy a driver­less con­trap­tion.

I hope folks con­sider care­fully be­fore buy­ing these fu­tur­is­tic ve­hi­cles, as an ac­ci­dent could be caused from some­thing as sim­ple as a loose bat­tery ter­mi­nal.

Yes, in­deed, reg­u­la­tors will have to come up with con­crete an­swers to a host of ques­tions be­fore swarms of these ve­hi­cles hit the roads.
