HUMAN OR MACHINE ERROR?
A self-driving car was involved in a fender bender in San Franciso though reportedly there was human error involved.
On the afternoon of January 8, a Nissan Leaf managed by Cruise Automation hit a parked Toyota Prius near an intersection, according to media reports. Though the incident began when the automated system steered the car incorrectly, the crash was technically a case of human error. Based on the Department of Motor Vehicles account, the driver took manual control, but did not change the vehicle's path before colliding with the other car.
