Driverless cars, we have heard this term many times from last couple of years, but are they safe? 

Pro and Cons of Driverless Cars

Driverless cars are very risky and dangerous for health. Driverless cars such as those being developed by Google, could be lethal weapons, the FBI has reportedly warned. FBI also said, “under the ‘Multitasking’ heading, the bad actors will be able to conduct tasks that require use of both hands or taking one’s eyes off the road which would be impossible today.”

An internal report, obtained by the Guardian, said the vehicles could be “game changing” for law enforcement. The report noted criminals using automated cars would have both hands free and be able to take their eyes off the road during a car chase.

Driverless cars are being approved by Google and according to the FBI, there are chances to get approved in the US within next five to seven years. However, it was announced that the British government was rewriting the highway code to allow for driverless cars.

According to survey and FBI report, driverless cars could be dangerous include health risk but who are developing the driverless technology have argued that taking the human driver out of the car would remove a lot of the risks involved in driving.

The report says that police cars, ambulance, fire brigade and other vehicles do rush to deal with emergencies would be helped by automated cars. “The risk that distraction or poor judgment leading to collision that stems from manual operation would be substantially reduced,” it read.

Driverless cars sounds positive and negative both… 

Driverless cars technology are being tested to UK, US and other countries to see its performance, judgment, safety, efficient etc… Sometimes it sounds dangerous but if it meet all criteria than just wait to see driverless cars live on the road.
