As technology becomes more prevalent in our vehicle functions, new questions regarding auto safety arise. How can we trust computers to regulate our vehicles? Is having less human control over driving safe? We do not have definite answers to these questions yet. However, human designed vehicles always have the potential to be unsafe, regardless of what technology is integrated into the vehicle.
These new technologies bring more liability upon the manufacturers of these new ideas. Car manufacturers can be responsible for defective parts and vehicle malfunctions, and laws regulating liability for defective software components that lead to accidents will follow suit.
These new innovative technologies receive a lot of backlash from those who think that computers should not be making driving decisions on our behalf. However, evidence shows that preventable human errors on the road are responsible for almost all accidents.
