Driverless cars will depend on humans

-

I HEARD an ‘expert’ on the radio the other day saying driverless cars are safer because human drivers are capable of making mistakes. These are the humans who will have to take control in ten seconds if anything goes wrong!

So, just one thought, as it is humans who will be building and updating the software, how can the car be safer? Mistakes will still be made.

Perhaps if more care, concentrat­ion and better training was used, humans would not make so many mistakes in the first place and driverless cars would not be necessary.

Why do we make the error of changing the circumstan­ces, instead of our behaviour? Is nobody capable of real honest actions any more?

How can mankind (OK, personkind) ever improve?
