I sure hope those self-driving cars aren't subject to autocorrect. sigh.

Think of the infrastructure that will require. Fortunately, I expect to be dead before this eventuality arrives.

Current mortality tables will do just fine, thanks.

Quote:
Consumers’ concerns over self-driving car technology could soften future hit to auto insurers’ revenues

In suggesting that insurers’ auto coverage revenues might not suffer quite as big a hit as many experts predict it will when self-driving cars hit the roadways, I posited last time that the kind of technology that emerges could be critical. Certainly, auto insurance revenues will be pinched as self-driving cars lead to significantly fewer accidents and claims. But the reduction in auto insurance revenues might not be as significant as some predict if automakers opt to offer self-driving cars with auto-pilot technology that drivers can disengage, as opposed to fully autonomous vehicles that do not even have steering wheels, brake pedals and accelerators.

How likely is that scenario?

As I noted last time, surveys by the Insurance Information Institute and J.D. Power show that even a significant portion of younger consumers are dubious about the technology, and far more older consumers distrust it.

I don’t imagine that some recent setbacks, including a fatality, by self-driving car developers will materially slow the advent of this technology, but they might influence it.

......
In the meantime, a significant portion of drivers are skeptical of the technology. As a result, will consumer advocates push lawmakers to require all automakers to provide drivers the ability to disengage the auto-pilot feature on self-driving cars? Already, in the wake of the Tesla fatality, a group of consumer advocates have sent a letter to President Obama seeking to end the administration’s “undue haste to get autonomous vehicle technology to the road” ahead of appropriate regulations to protect consumers. The consumer group also expressed concerns about Google’s fully autonomous vehicle.

Eh, it's also possible that in the magical future, you'll be able to just walk right across the street without paying any attention because the cars will automatically swerve around you.

More likely, imo, it's a political problem. We already have cities where you can't walk (see: Florida) and other cities where you can't drive (see: Europe).

Do we actually have numbers on Tesla mortality rates? Every Tesla autopilot crash makes national headlines, but are they actually crashing at a higher rate per mile driven than meatbag driven cars?
