IT IS SAFER
Self driven cars are safer than manually driven cars by human beings.

A research by American auto regulator have proven that every year, 35,000 drivers and passengers die on America’s roads. That is equivalent to one death every 15 minutes, and 94% of those are caused by human error.
IT HAS KILLED PEOPLE
Despite proven that self driven cars are safer than human driven cars, there have been incidents of death as a result of auto crash by self driven cars.
In May 2016, a driverless-car dream turned into a nightmare when Tesla Motors (NASDAQ: TSLA) Model S owner had Autopilot engaged on a highway but was crushed by an incoming truck.
SELF DRIVEN CARS ARE NOT CREATED EQUAL
National Highway Traffic Safety Administration have categorized cars into five categories from level 0 to 4. In Level 0 cars human does everything while in level 4 cars, the driver does virtually nothing in the car. Semi driverless cars are proven to be the most dangerous of them all.
SELF DRIVING CARS WANT TO BE REGULATED
Most companies squander money to lobby politicians and regulatory bodies to steer clear of their business. Unlike most companies self driving auto companies want to be regulated.

Sometimes they go to the extent of establishing bodies that will ensure safer driving. For instance, in April, Ford, Alphabet, Lyft, Uber, and Volvo Cars established the “Self-Driving Coalition for Safer Streets Opens a New Window. ” to “work with lawmakers, regulators, and the public to realize the safety and societal benefits of self-driving vehicles.”
Self driving autos might attract more investors than any other sector in 2017.
