So, if this 2 or 3 ton driverless hunk of metal runs over your wife or one of your children, who do you sue? The owner who was asleep in the back seat or the car manufacturer who built the thing?

Call me old fashioned, but I don't trust high tech all that much. What happens when the sensors get dirty? My truck has a backup camera which is a wonderful device but sometimes (like right now) it is so dirty as to be useless.


Aircraft have been flying along on autopilot for a long while but professional people who are well trained to react in an emergency are at the controls ready to do their best to remedy any problem that may arise. If problems do arise, there is a fair bit of room to manoeuvre up there. Not so much on a 2 lane highway where one is only a few feet away from the truck going the other direction. We know people will not concentrate on the task of driving if the car is on autopilot. They don't do so good now. They text etc when they should be paying attention, so we cannot rely upon a "driver" in a driverless car to be ready to take over if the electronics are not doing a good job of it. We have already had the case of the Tesla owner who got himself killed by not paying attention to what the car was doing.
