Google's self-driving car in serious crash after van runs red light
And don't worry about human drivers hanging on to their old human drive cars. The lower costs of hailed, share ride, self drive cars will be so great even the poor will find riding cheaper than driving, and insurance premiums, and state mandated insurance minimums will skyrocket. All of these things will make human drivers so expensive that few will engage in the activity. Expect the adoption of the self drive car to proceed like the Smartphone, at first everyone will poo-poo the idea, then after riding in one, they will want the self drive vehicle, then they will realize that driving your own car is a costly, time wasting endeavor. Then they will change.
With 94% of accidents human caused, and the google cars showing a reduction in accident to 1/25, these vehicles will change transportation, and road accidents, deaths, and injuries.
