Can Self-Driving Cars Be the Key to Preventing Accidents?

Can Self-Driving Cars Be the Key to Preventing Accidents?

Safety officials, auto manufacturers, and lawmakers are rightfully concerned about ways to improve roadway safety and reduce numbers of preventable traffic accidents, injuries, and deaths. New laws, better safety enforcement, and campaigns to increase safety awareness are crucial to accomplishing this goal. According to a newly released study, vehicles - particularly self-driving cars- could be the real secret to putting an end to roadway accidents.

The study, conducted by a multinational consulting firm, compiled stats and interviews with numerous industry officials. Based on this information, researchers were able to make several predictions:

  • Widespread use of self-driving cars could eliminate as much as 90% of all roadway accidents in the United States.
  • More motorists using self-driving driving vehicles could potentially save $190 billion in damages and health costs each year.
  • Autonomous and semi-autonomous cars can save thousands of lives each year.
  • Americans are likely to widely adopt self-driving cars in roughly 15 years, with initial models being implemented early in the next data.

Experts agree that self-driving cars are the leading trend in today’s auto industry. At auto shows across the country, autonomous and semi-autonomous cars have dominated the focus of both automakers and Americans. These advanced vehicles are being hailed not just for their novelty, but also for their potential to significantly improve vehicle safety and revolutionize the automobile.

Today, more and more vehicles are equipped with advancements that make them more autonomous and safer, including adaptive cruise control, lane-departure prevention technology, and blind-spot alerts. While some automakers are predicting wider use of these technologies and more fully automated cars, others suggest it may take until 2030 before self-driving cars dominate the road.
