Driverless vehicle kills pedestrian...also speeding!

Driverless vehicle kills pedestrian...also speeding!

Well, this happened. The question I have is who do you issue the speeding ticket to, the ride along or the programmer who programmed it to speed past the speed limit? Can't blame skynet on this human error.

There was a human behind the wheel in this incident, correct? Acting as a monitor.

That's ashamed! Probably instead of monitoring the car, was texting, or something.

Question:
Would YOU ever get in a driver-less road use vehicle?
I would have to be out of my mind :!:
This reminds me of the article I read some years ago where the husband who was driving a large camper/ RV put the thing on "automatic cruise control" and left the driver seat to join his wife back in the kitchen for a bite to eat. I don't recall how long before the crash occurred.

the worst is : that dumbass driver went to court to sue the camper manufacturer and he won the case because it was not specified in the manual that you had keep the wheel in your hands with the autocruise on....

Everytime autonomous vehicles are mentioned I always think of Total Recall.
A big no thank you for those.

I hope these things never take to the road. We just seem to keep on taking skills away from people. Within a decade of these things becoming the norm people wont know how to drive anymore, the human race continues to regress. I hope the family of this woman sue Uber for every penny they have (i think they said uber owned it on the news).

I would bring the "driver", the owner and the manufacturer of that stupid, worthless, non-working piece of shit car to court and try to get every last penny out of them. These autonomous cars have IMO no right to be on a public road.

This is a long well known fact.
Man will become a thing of the past.
Women have known this since the invention of the vibrating dildo.

Rafael Vasquez, a 44-year-old test driver from Uber, was behind the wheel of the Volvo XC90 SUV at the time, the police said.

Behind wheel = idiot
Override controls?
Brake?
WTF?

This is dumb......
