Will driverless cars really save millions of lives? Lack of data makes it hard 
to know.

        But despite the excitement and the hype, top engineers and
        federal regulators face a basic problem. They're still
        struggling with exactly how to compare man (or woman) with
        machine.  "One of the hardest questions to answer is, 'How do
        these cars compare to human drivers?'" Chris Urmson, then
        the chief of Google's self-driving car project, told
        transportation engineers in Washington this year. "And part of
        the reason why that's hard is we don't actually have a good
        understanding of how good human drivers really are."

The correct term is "Internet" NOT "internet" -- please don't 
fall into the trap of using the latter. It's just plain wrong!
