In different phrases, take away human error, negligence or recklessness from the equation, and automobiles would stop being an instrument of dying and dismemberment.

Who couldn’t get behind that?

Most main automobile producers have sunk tons of of billions into creating and testing driverless automobiles; but the end line appears to be nowhere in sight. So what occurred?
