DRIVERLESS CARS: DO WE TRUST THEM?
During the last decades road collisions have become one of the leading death causes, especially for youths. Technology is working on it and is providing solutions to reduce risks and consequences. Driverless cars could be a decisive factor in reducing road accidents in the future.
Data from the World Health Organisation for Global Road Safety Week has revealed that:
- Each day, 3,700 people die in road crashes
- Annually, that's 1,350,000 fatalities on the world’s roads
- Low-Income countries have just 1% of the world's vehicles but account for 13% of road traffic fatalities
- India, China and Brazil are the top 3 most dangerous places to travel by road
- Road accidents #1 cause of death of people aged 5-14 years
We are pleased to offer our support for the latest #dontstreamanddrive day, which takes place on Tuesday 16 April. It’s a worthy cause highlighting the risk posed by drivers who choose to ‘live-stream’ their journeys using hand-held mobile phones.
“Our message to drivers who still think it’s acceptable to use a hand-held mobile phone for any purpose while driving is simple. Please put it down and give 100 per cent concentration on safe driving. If you don’t, you are likely to kill someone and you will go to prison for a long time.”
