Self-Driving Cars Causing Collisions

July 2024

Self-driving cars have been involved in collisions.  Some of the common causes of the collisions include faulty sensors, software malfunctions or inaccurate mapping data.  Further, despite the features in a self-driving car that allow it to work automomously, human drivers can cause accidents by interfering with the controls, misusing features or being inattentive.  Another risk of self-driving vehicles is their vulnerability to hacking and cyberattacks.

While self-driving cars look to be the way of the future, they do not come without risks.  As the technology evolves, further research and regulatory efforts are needed to address safety concerns and reduce collision rates.
