Imagine never having to drive again, doesn’t that sound great? And it’s more of a reality than you might think. Self-driving cars are definitely in our near future, in fact several automakers are testing them, and the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) predicts 75 percent of cars on the road in 2040 will be self-driving.
Safety is another great benefit of self-driving cars. In 2010 there were 35,000 deaths due to car crashes in the U.S. and 90 percent of vehicle crashes can be attributed to driver error. So, self-driving cars mean less error which means less crashes. Self-driving cars are also programmed to follow local traffic laws. So not only will you be safe, but you won’t have to worry about getting a speeding ticket.
