Waymo crash: another self-driving car accident

The theme of self-driving cars continues today. Our last two posts have been about the dangers presented by autonomous vehicles, and the issues that the Uber self-driving car fleet has had so far. Today, we want to talk about the company Waymo, which was formerly Google's self-driving car division. One of Waymo's self-driving vehicles was involved in a car accident recently for a reason that is similar to the problem outlined in our last post.

Problems with Uber's self-driving fleet reported

On the heels of our last post -- where we talked about the U.S. House of Representatives allowing car companies to accelerate their plans to widely release self-driving cars to the public -- we would like to detail some less than flattering news about Uber's self-driving vehicle fleet, and, more generally, some scary news for all autonomous vehicles.

How opioids are shaping the world of car accidents

Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs is a massive problem on American roadways. People who engage in this behavior are knowingly putting themselves and others out on the road in danger.

Drunk driving alleged in fatal Anaheim crash

A 34-year-old father who was expecting a second child soon was killed in a car crash in Anaheim, California recently. The crash was caused by an 18-year-old man who was driving a Nissan Maxima at the time. He crashed into a Toyota Camry being driven by the 34-year-old father. Video from the scene shows a vehicle overturned and another severely damaged, with tons of debris strewn about the neighborhood where the crash occurred.

Uber's Singapore expansion marred by faulty vehicles

As our world hurdles closer and closer to self-driving cars on a widely-available scale, the prospect of car accidents that involve one or multiple self-driving vehicles needs to be addressed. Laws and liability that give us the ability to grasp fault in a self-driving car accident are critical.

Startling jump in auto accidents bodes poorly for road safety

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) released some figures about the 2015 year, and the figures indicate that car accidents are becoming more common and that innocent people are paying the price for it. The data shows that in 2015, roughly 96 people died every day as a result of car accidents. Additionally, about 6,700 people were injured every day as a result of car accidents in 2015.
