Just How Safe Are They?

From Transport Evolved.

Telsa’s started the roll out of FSD V12. Comma.ai has continued its push for towards self-driving, and Cruise? Well, Cruise has had a bit of a rough month. First there was the collision with a pedestrian, and then there was the report into that collision in which Cruise didn’t come up smelling of roses.

So the question is, are we ready for autonomous vehicles, and are they really safer?
