#Driverless cars to hit our shores this year!

The hype behind self driving cars from the likes of Volvo, Google, Tesla and Mercedes-Benz isn’t just because people are too lazy to drive themselves, but for the genuine possibility of fatality-free roads.
Google’s self-driving car director Chris Urmon wrote in May that while that fatality-free future through driverless cars is possible, at the moment smaller accidents caused by other cars with human drivers is still a problem.
“Even when our software and sensors can detect a sticky situation and take action earlier and faster than an alert human driver, sometimes we won’t be able to overcome the realities of speed and distance; sometimes we’ll get hit just waiting for a light to change,” Urmon said.
