Distressing: A dangerous mix of human- and computer-guided vehicles

Last updated: May 3, 2016

Distracted driver

Someday, every car on the road may be a self-driving car. But before then, there's likely to be a long period in which some cars are guided by humans and others are guided by computers.

Google has confirmed that its driverless vehicles have been in some crashes. But in every case to date, the company claims a human driver has been at fault.

So why worry about the autonomous cars? It's possible that the hyper-safe driving style of computers - the type that makes autonomous cars likely to slow for an obstacle much sooner than a human driver who is late for work - might mix poorly with all those impatient humans out there.

There may also be some human drivers who, upon noting self-driving cars' unrelenting focus on avoiding collisions, might make some bolder lane changes when in their vicinity.
