Self driving car users are legally accountable for it or not, it now becomes a major headline across the globe. Indeed, Autonomous-car that auto-pilot, are users who own it legally liable for any accident it creates or not?
We expect to see more and more self-driving cars on the road this year and thereafter. Since it is auto-pilot and self driving and traditional car drivers are hand-free and mind-free, most likely the person will sit behind as well, and since the person is not more in driving the car, are they legally accountable for the car crash accident or other related problems and maybe cause the third party dead?
Are car accidents investigated based on the car log whether autopilot is enabled or not? Or any car crash accident is legally liable by the manufacturer who produces a self driving car? Whether it is human error or autopilot that causes tragic death, there are no things we all want to see. Self driving cars are under the instruction of the user, so they are liable, like exercise speed or typical human behavior for dangerous driving, so users are liable for it, if any car crash and related accident with it.
We are on the road of transformation over to self-driving cars, or known as connected and autonomous vehicles (CAVs), legal framework needs to be established so the transformation can be accelerated.
