Trou­bling ques­tions about self-driv­ing cars

The Hamilton Spectator - - OPINION -

RE: Trans­porta­tion

I have a few ques­tions about self-driv­ing cars. If no one is driv­ing and the car mal­func­tions and gets into an ac­ci­dent, who is li­able for dam­ages? Who is li­able if the pas­sen­gers are in­jured? In both cases it should be the man­u­fac­turer.

There­fore, does one need li­a­bil­ity in­sur­ance? Does one need a driver’s li­cence? You need nei­ther to be a pas­sen­ger.

We don’t even have self-driv­ing trol­leys that have a set route, sched­ule and run on rails. I won­der why this wouldn’t be the log­i­cally first step if this is ac­tu­ally a good idea. Bruce McMick­ing, Dun­das
