Recent news articles have revealed that carmakers have demonstrated their unwillingness to embrace the technology of Google’s driverless car system and its legislation.
According to the information recently disclosed, the auto industry has strongly objected the “autonomous vehicle” system by declaring their apprehension toward the possibility driverless cars could pave the way for lawsuits in the case crashes associated with the new technology occur.
Google’s agents have declared that contrary to the popular belief, this new technology could reduce the number of vehicular accidents in California considerably. According to the news, since the Alliance of Automobile Manufacturers has voiced a strong concern related to the liability question posed by carmakers in the state, the Transportation Committee has decided to send the bill to the Rules Committee so this issue can be discussed before any decisions are made.
It’s my hope as a Los Angeles car accident lawyer that lawmakers and statesmen will review this legislation carefully. I hope that all of those involved in the introduction of this technology will have the safety of drivers in California on their minds at all times. I’m glad road safety is an issue close to everybody’s heart during this time. I urge motorists in California to keep road safety also as their number one priority, always.
If you ever sustain serious injuries related to an accident that was caused by the negligence of a third party, please consider consulting with a personal injury lawyer in your city right away. Don’t hesitate.
